DESIGN :: Belle features NEST14 by AMS

TSA_DESIGN_BELLE_AMS_Aug-Sept-2014,-focus-1 TSA_DESIGN_BELLE_AMS_-2014-07-30-at-12.05 TSA_DESIGN_BELLE_AMS_-2014-07-30-at-12.04SNAP founder and creative director Anne-Maree Sargeant curated  NEST14 - the key highlight of Australia’s longest running deigsn and architecture event designEX -. Sargeant curated nest, and her agencey Tproduced by my agency THE SNAP COLLECTIVE - which officially launches early July.

“The original concept was too close to Launch Pad - the prototype platform I established for the INDESIGN Group 12 years ago; and given Launch Pad has cemented itself as an important mainstay for Australian furniture, lighting and product designers. – designEX needed something new,” Sargeant explains.

“Given the ‘emerging’ sector of Australian design is well covered by a myriad of platforms, I identified the need for INDEPENDENT (as opposed to emerging) Australian designers to exhibit in a commercial context – and designEX agreed to support my strategy. I was engaged in 2011 to establish NEST as key feature of designEX. Now in it’s 3rd incarnation, NEST14 embodies my original vision and shaping up for an even stronger presence for NEST15 next year in Melbourne.”

DESIGN :: Bec Brittain x New York Design Week





TSA_DESIGN_BEC_BRITTAIN_Helix-Floor-Pink_20130729444_extended-backgroundOne of our favourite lighting designers Bec Brittain was a clear winner at ICFF, the trade show component of New York Design Week.

After studies in architecture and product design, Brittain founded her Brooklyn studio in 2011, he work since featuring globally in leading publications and blogs.

Represented in New York by MATTER_MADE gallery, expect to see her work soon in Australia.

Whilst wall sconces are priced upwards of $1600 USD, the collectors market is currently coveting  more complex pendant lights – with designs expressing complex geometric forms and luxury metals – fetching upwards of $20,000 USD.
