    Firstly, we would love to extend a huge welcome to our newest Idh member,

    Sarah Virzi who has joined the magazine design team.

    While we begin to look orward to the cooler days, we find beauty amongst

    the concrete jungle that surrounds us. With textures o wood, metals andwire sofened with muted colours, the inspiration flows through this issue.

    Beginning with Architects, March Studios, who are known or their incredible

    Aesop interiors. We muse over the Wild Tings, Te Maker, Natalie Marie,

    whose greatest tools are her hands and we travel with our Adventure Writer

    Kirsten to Peru... Come join us.

    &

    hello.

    March was established in 2007 by partners Rodney Eggleston

    (1981) and Anne-Laure Cavigneaux (1980). Eggleston trained asan architect at RMIT University and Cavigneaux has a degree invisual communication.

    We have amassed quite a large portfolio of work in the last7 years, including retail interiors, houses, socially aware artsinitiatives and even the interior of a boat.

    Our work has been built in Melbourne, Adelaide, Brisbane,Sydney, Singapore, Zurich, Paris and New York for a range of

    clients, including Baker D. Chirico, Damir Doma, Sneakerboy andAesop, for whom we have designed and built 13 stores.

    The houses are probably the most satisfying of all the projects asthey represent a holistic approach to living and are hand craftedfor the clients who eventually inhabit them. Brentknoll, The Mullet,and Somers Beach House are the most exciting examples of thehouses we've designed to date.

    DESIGN STUDIO // MARCH STUDIOS.

    Sustainability is inherent in all good design - the very act of design

    forces one to think of these issues and this will become more and

    more relevant in the way we live in the future.

    Thanks for coming down! We don't worry to much about

    'marketing' or words like 'brand.' If you follow your vision and enjoy

    what you do, no matter what it is, people will generally gravitate

    around and jump on board. We've been fortunate to date that this

    has happened and have attracted a lot of similar minded clientsand collaborators.

    THERE IS A STRONG FOCUS ON SUSTAINABILITY WITHIN YOURDESIGN. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT TO YOU AND HOW DO YOUTHINK IT WILL EFFECT THE FUTURE OF THE WAY WE LIVE?

    LAST YEAR WE SAW YOU SPEAK AT SEMI PERMANENTIN SYDNEY. DO YOU TAKE ON PUBLIC SPEAKING ROLESLIKE THIS OFTEN AND WHAT CHALLENGES HAVE YOUFOUND WITH THE MARKETING SIDE OF YOUR BUSINESS?

    YOUR "AESOP" STORES BOTH WITHINAUSTRALIA & INTERNATIONALLY HAVEBEEN EXTENSIVELY DISCUSSED WITHIN THE

    INDUSTRY. HOW DID THIS PROJECT BEGIN ANDWHAT WAS YOUR INSPIRATION?

    We now have a long-standing collaboration with the

    Australian skin care company, but it began purely by

    chance as our old studio was next door to their old head

    office in Carlton.

    Anne-Laure was employed to design packaging and

    marketing campaigns to begin with, and eventually one

    thing led to another and we started designing stores, 13

    to date.

    Each shop demonstrates our direct attitude to the use

    of materials; brown bottles, dot tiles, coconut husk

    string; in each situation the crafting of each space has

    reflected a striking embrace of the pragmatics of retail

    while embodying the sensual, natural qualities of the

    Aesop product.

    DESIGN STUDIO // MARCH STUDIOS.

    We thrive on the fact that projects will not last forever,

    this in turn makes us think about re-use and what the

    future of a project might be.

    The Pen Plan series, Make Change and The Aviary

    were all projects constructed for very short life spans.

    As a result the materials used were totally recycled.Sometimes though we have designed for short periods

    of time but the projects have hung on, Section 08 was

    designed for a life-span of 6 months, (entering its 8th

    year) and Aesop Flinders Lane is also entering its 7th

    year after only being built for one Christmas trading

    period! Sometimes a project takes on its own destiny

    despite its original purpose.

    MANY OF YOUR PROJECTS ARE NON-PERMANENT IN THEIR NATURE. DO YOU FINDTHIS A CHALLENGE KNOWING THE SPACES AREDISMANTLED IN A SHORT TIME AFTER USE?

    India! It's such an amazing country and we are building long-termfriendships there that make our products even more special. Lasttime we were there altogether we went to the Taj Mahal on ourmorning off - it was incredibly inspiring.

    Fresh, original ideas that push the envelope, great business partnerswho love working together, it shines through and great quality fabric,we are all 100% Indian cotton - its delicious.

    Everyday and out of the way - anything from one of ourkids' drawings to a trinket we might find at a flea market in

    Paris.

    Kate and Hayley both have kids and we recognised a gapin the market for their little rug rats. This was confirmed by

    the barrage of emails we received from our own customersasking us to kick off a kids range. The people spoke and welistened! We think the quality of our kids' range is one of ourstrongest competitive advantages.

    Our new range launches in April. "All Grown Up" is inspiredby the whimsical and carefree nature of adolescence. Atime when your feet are planted firmly on the ground butyour head remains gloriously in the clouds. The worldis your playground and you are only limited by yourimagination.

    Kip & Co perfectly encapsulates this spirit by combiningsignature playful prints and bold colours with sophisticatedand luxurious cotton and velvet -perfect for the wintersnuggle. We have added beanbags to the range as well asextending our line to include king single and super king!

    YOUR DESIGNS ARE FILLED WITH COLOUR, PATTERNSAND TEXTURES, WHERE DO YOU DRAW YOURINSPIRATION FROM?

    PHOTOGRAPHER // BLACK EYE GALLERY

    Tom Evangelidis

    Tom Evangelidis grew up along the northern beaches of Sydney,Australia. He made his debut as a fashion photographer inLondon in the early 1990s before returning to Sydney to work inthe television and theatre industries.

    Seven years ago, Evangelidis shifted his focus to Interior Designand lifestyle photography, simultaneously travelling the world

    to pursue his passion for architecture. The result was threeexhibitions in Sydney titled Prague Architectural Portraits (1999),Casa Particular (2003) and Lost in Hanoi (2004), which documentthe diversity of architectural styles in the Czech Republic, Cubaand Vietnam.

    "Faade" is the culmination of all three exhibitions plus four

    additional photographic journeys through Russia, Romania,Turkey and Bulgaria, which were taken over a 10-year period.

    It documents an eclectic mix of architectural eras from the gothicbeauty of the 13th century to the ornate decadence of the 18thcentury and the austere classicism of the Communist era in the20th Prague, Bucharest, Hanoi, St Petersburg, Sofia, Istanbul andHavana a reflection of the photographers fascination with the

    toll time reeks on glorious architectural movements throughouthistory. Although the cities tell their own tales of turmoil andchange, for Evangelidis the precise location of each photographis incidental. He refrains from revealing too much about whereeach building stands, and he dodges clichd settings that mightbelong on a postcard.

    PHOTOGRAPHER // TOM EVANGELIDIS

    Critics have praised Evangelidis for his technical brillianceand subtle eye and his entrancing scale, colour andtexture. His evolution as a photographer is accented by hisinnate appreciation for beauty, particularly beauty unveiled inunexpected locations. Evangelidis unique understanding of

    people, objects, antiques, music, faces and places, collectivelylend an air of painterly sophistication to his work.

    Tom Evangelidis rejects this candy-coated world of architecturalperfection in favour of a style thats relentlessly honest andunapologetically raw. He is drawn to the details that give oururban landscape its character and richness the unsightly

    garbage dumpsters that sit jarringly beside cathedrals of flawlessbeauty; the peeling paint that curls from the doors of onceluxurious homes; and the concrete monstrosities that loomabove vast industrial wastelands. It is here hidden amongst thedebris that our cities reveal their humanity.

    Beneath the layers of crumbling plaster we uncover tales of

    poverty, hardship and survival. Scattered between austereCommunist monuments we find evidence of political glory andeconomic defeat chronicled side by side. Behind the wallsof houses sighing visibly with age we find stories of strength,endurance and pride.

    As a photographer, Evangelidisis fascinated by the evolution ofarchitecture and its intricate linkswith politics, culture and class.He approaches major publicinstallations with the same respectas humble, ramshackle homesbecause he understands they areequally important in documentingthe progression.

    Evangelidis is currently based inSydney, where he continues to

    work as a photographer and runsBlackeye Gallery in Darlinghurst.

    ...I was in search for the perfect image to send to a friend

    and share that feeling of connectedness.

    My search led me to an intoxicating image by Russian artist

    Tatiana Kozakova. The surrealism sent me into a spin, I was

    lost in an alternate reality of winged bird-fish humans that

    ride on weightless sea-saws, sipping on red wine through

    straws, catching fish under a starlit night whilst UFO's play

    in the distance.

    Her works depict creatures and magical lands, brought to

    life through rich brooding colours and vivid imagination.

    "We're the Wild Things" is a series of musings over artists

    who are inspired by animals and creatures. Here we feature

    just three of The Wild Thingsthat have in turn inspired us

    on our blog. We take a trip around the world from Russia to

    Germany and over to Peru."

    45/I first came across Kazakova when searching for art inspired by a full moon - and I found this piece to theleft! This of course started a frenzy of image hunting and I completely forgot what I was doing - that, in my

    an escapism which is welcomed amongst the sometimes noisy clutter of life.

    Aside from having one of the longest and coolest names I've

    ever seen, Ana Teresa Barboza takes embroidery out

    of the hands of your grandmother and into the land

    of baddass! Using thread and mixed medium,

    her images ooze metaphors and meaning.

    There is a dark beauty to this Wild Thing

    that draws you in and makes you stop

    and think.

    Bodies become canvases and animals

    draw attention to our intricate and

    fragile human nature.

    Herakut is one those artists with whom I felt an immediate and deep connection and their work

    continues to completely spazz me out on a daily basis with their beautiful, painful, weird and

    wonder-filled creations.

    Herakut is in fact an artist with four hands: those of Akut the graffiti artist,

    and those of Hera the painter. Watch them in action here.

    HOW DID YOU START IN THE JEWELLERY BUSINESS?

    WALK US THROUGH YOUR MATERIALS YOU USE?

    I studied a degree in Visual arts at Sydney University, majoringin Jewellery and object. It was a very hands on course. I learnt,experimented and learnt some more. By my final year I hadstarted to find my own sense of design and way of making. I

    started to make pieces for friends and family - that was whatreally sparked the start of Natalie Marie.

    My label has grown really organically since then, Ive continuedto learn as I go. When I graduated uni and started my business,I was making jewellery from my kitchen bench. I now have anamazing studio set up with an extensive range of tools and

    equipment which enable me to push my designs as well as takeon more technically extensive projects.

    Natalie Marie continues to grow and develop everyday, it'sexciting to ride along with it.

    I work largely with precious metals. Predominantly Gold, Rose Goldand Sterling Silver. I have experimented with materials over theyears but when it comes to jewellery that customers are wearingday in, day out, you cant beat the quality, durability and strengthof precious metals. I also work with crystals, semi precious andprecious stones.

    All of my materials, metals and stones are ethically sound, and themajority are sourced from within Australia. I also utilise sustainableproduction techniques wherever possible. Its important to methat the pieces have a certain integrity through and through - frommaterials - to formation through to the entire customer experience.

    WHAT SETS YOUR DESIGNS APARTFROM OTHERS IN THE MARKET?

    FROM OTHERS IN THE MARKET?

    My hands. Every single piece passesthrough my hands, everything is made inmy Sydney studio. In terms of aesthetic, Ithink that my pieces have quite a particularfeel which speaks through all of them -from the organic bands, to the customengagement rings. My process of both

    design and production is very organic.

    "I TEND NOT TO DESIGN A PIECE ASSUCH, BUT I CREATE A DESIGN."

    It's almost always through experimentationor play that my designs come about. I think

    that translates through the metal workin the way that the pieces have a naturalsense of flow. I have let the materialsdictate the form rather than let a drawingdictate how I work the materials. It's anunconventional way of working - which Igot in trouble for at Uni, but it seems to be

    working for me so far.

    WHAT'S THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU HAVE FACED IN

  • 7/25/2019 Idh Magazine - April 2014

    58/105

    Time making each piece by hand just means that there is aninevitable amount of time, and energy that is involved. When timesget really busy I can be found late at night tapping away in mystudio. (I am not particularly popular with my neighbours). I reallydo love making though, and take great pride in what I do. Even if itis my last piece of the night and I am bleary eyed with raw fingers, Iwill not put it down until it is looking shiny and perfect. I put a lot oflove into what I do, its important to me that the pieces I am sendingout into the world embody and represent that.

    As I mentioned above, I am more of a maker than a designer. I amat my most creative when I am hands on, making in the studio. Mystudio is conveniently underneath my house, which makes life somuch easier. It is great to be able to have both my office space, mymaking space and my home space all tied into one. My husbandis also a designer so we have a very creative home environmentwhich I love. We are good at bouncing ideas off each other, getting

    carried away and staying up all night.

    WHAT'S THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU HAVE FACED IN

    PRODUCING HIGHER VOLUMES OF YOUR DESIGNS?

    WHERE DO YOU DO MOST OF YOUR DESIGNING FROM?

    I had a pretty strong idea of how my label would be branded from dayone. I guess because the label is so synonymous with myself. With

    a graphic designer husband we were able to create the brandingtogether right back at the start. Packaging was very important forme. A precious, handmade piece of jewellery deserves a specialbox to sit in. I picked up a tiny balsa wood box from a shop backin England way way back before I even started university. I kept itaround for years whilst searching and searching until I finally foundsomething similar. This formed the basis of my packaging, which is

    a series of small, balsa wood boxes with a natural calico lining.

    HOW DID YOU DECIDE ON BRANDING YOUR COMPANY,INCLUDING YOUR BAGS FOR THE JEWELS & BOXS?

    A sense of identity. Building a business is challenging,

    especially in an industry which is competitive anddynamic. It is so important to be able to identify what itis you do and stand behind it wholeheartedly.

    Due to the nature of what I do and the processes thatresult in my product, its inevitably very personal to me.What I have learnt is how important it is to embrace and

    believe in the identity of the label. This is what sets itapart, and is also how connections are made.

    Start. I think it can be so daunting starting anything fromthe ground up, but really, once you start, things have nochoice but to start coming together and it really is theonly way to figure out how to do it!

    My biggest tips would be to take risks, take steps andtake your time. Buy one new tool every time you getpaid. Have a strong vision for what you want to achieve,

    set goals and surpass them. Most importantly, find whatsets you apart, your identity, and run with it.

    WHAT IS THE MOST VALUABLE TOOL INYOUR BUSINESS?

    "I FELT COMPELLED TO TRYSOMETHING NEW AND OUTOF MY COMFORT ZONE."

    BlogWatch

    Growing up, I never dreamed of becoming an Interior Designer or having

    anything to do with design. I always imagined I would follow in my dadsfootsteps (he is a clinical psychologist), but once my family immigrated

    to Australia I quickly had to reevaluate my options. I ended up studying

    Architectural Drafting at TAFE, and afterwards continued on to study Interior

    Architecture at the University of NSW. After graduating and working in the

    industry for a few years, I had one of those what the hell am I doing here

    moments and came very close to giving up design and going back to uni to

    study Psychology. But Im glad I decided to stick it out as I eventually foundmy groove and the rest, as they say, is history.

    HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN INTERIOR DESIGN?

    To be perfectly honest, managing an online publication, an interior design

    business and various other consulting & advisory commitments can be a

    struggle at times I aint no superwoman! Having said this, I am obsessiveabout constantly improving and looking at ways of becoming more

    effective and efficient, and having the right team around me. Most of the

    time I feel really lucky to be living such a fulfilled life as chaotic as it may

    be my work, my passion, friendships and motherhood seamlessly blend

    into one organic existence, and I get to do the things I love, with the people

    I love, on the projects I love For me, this is a huge and ongoing source of

    energy and inspiration!

    When I first started the blog, I had no idea why or what I was doing in so

    many ways. There was no plan or strategy in place, and I had to learn

    everything along the way. At the same time, I felt compelled to try something

    new and out of my comfort zone. Id been collecting images, inspiration and

    all kinds of information during the 15 odd years of working as a designer,

    and at first I thought the blog was going be a good way to catalogue my

    research and share it with others. I never had any expectations from the blogand I certainly had no idea that people would actually read it! But I guess if

    Im 100% honest, I think I was secretly hoping that the blog would somehow

    show me the way to my utopia, but I had NO IDEA how this was going to

    happen. It was like walking into a room full of thick fog and hoping Id end up

    somewhere good, but I couldnt even see how big that room was, what was

    in it, where I was going I literally just had to take one step at a time and

    trust myself and the process.

    On a personal level, I used to be petrified of speaking publicly and putting

    myself out there just like so many of us. My decision to start blogging was

    a conscious effort to get over myself and to face my demons in order to

    become a better person and a better designer. So far, my decision to conquer

    one of my biggest fears has definitely been my best one.

    absolutely love what I do, so all the hard work

    doesnt feel so hard most of the time.

    Nestled off Londsdale Street in Canberra's creative

    suburb of Braddon, Eighty Six's meals are designed

    to be shared and the blackboard menu is continually

    changing. The wine list works in the same way with

    only one or two boxes being ordered, sold and then

    changed. The space itself is intentionally electric, withmusic always playing to create atmosphere (often hip

    hop, because it's what we love!).

    We want people to be welcomed into our house, the

    food we make is what we cook at home for our friends

    and family. It is about cutting away all the bullshit

    involved with dining and creating an atmospherewhere we treat people how we would entertain

    We tried to keep all design local and really employed the use

    Although its not hard to make Giselle, Kate or Angelina lookgood, the world of fashion believes that no-one can make themlook better than Mario Testino.

    Testinos gaze has become the dominant way of seeing couture,and we cant get enough of his exotically bright, sharp, saturatedstyle.

    Mario Testino is Peruvian, and his deep connection to hishomeland is obvious. He has shot numerous times for Vogue inCuzco, and owns MATE, a gallery based in Lima the countryscapital, dedicated to exhibiting his work from Peru and abroad.

    Born in Lima in 1954, he studied economics at university before

    moving to London in 1976. He began his fashion photographycareer living in an abandoned hospital near Trafalgar Square,selling portraits and hair & make-up packages to aspiringmodels for 25. He first appeared in Vogue in 1983, launchinghis career, and 20 years later has over 1000 published imagesand 55 covers with Vogue Paris alone.

    In this issue, IDH is going to take a peek at travelling to Cuzcoand the Sacred Valley, where Testino found the inspiration forhis stunning Alta Moda exhibition of high Andean fashion, nowshowing at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute in New York.

    dense jungle surrounds, if it s

    not already; Machu Picchu

    should be on your bucket

    list. Discovered in a tangle of

    vines by American Historian

    Hiram Bingham in 1911, thetemple site was built by the

    Incas in 1450, but abandoned

    before the Spanish Conquest

    100 years later. With no

    written records, the exact

    function of the site is still a

    mystery. Archaeologists and

    historians believe that it could

    have been either a temple

    complex or the estate of an

    Incan Emperor. Exploring

    Machu Picchu at sunrise and/

    or sunset is a must, allowing

    you to soak in the awe of

    the site and hang out with

    the resident llamas before or

    after the crowds. Highlights

    are walking to the Inti Punku,

    the Sun Gate entry point for

    the Inca Trail, and climbing

    Huayna Picchu behind

    the main ruin site. Hire an

    English-speaking guide at the

    entrance, or do it ourself with

    a guidebook.

    to stay overnight. To reach

    the site of the ruins, tourist

    buses run regularly up and

    down the 8 kilometre road

    starting at 5am.

    STAYat the Inkaterra Machu

    Picchu Pueblo Hotel, a luxury

    jungle eco-retreat located in

    Aguas Calientes.

    EATat the Inkaterra Dining

    Room and Bar. Tastecontemporary Andean food

    overlooking the Vilcanota

    River. This place is so

    stunning you wont want to

    leave even for dinner - except

    to see Machu Picchu

    of course.

    Be inspired by the Mario Testinos

    beautiful Alta Moda project.

    Translating directly as "high fashion"

    in Spanish, Alta Moda is a collectionof photographic portraits made

    by Testino of Peruvians wearing

    traditional and festive dress from

    the mountain regions of Cuzco.

    Over a 5-year period, Testino

    travelled to Cuzco multiple times to

    work closely with renowned local

    photographer Martin Chambi to

    create the images.

    The collection was first exhibited in

    2013 at MATE in Lima, and is now

    showing at the Queen Sofia Spanish

    Institute in New York. For more

    information and future exhibition

    tour dates visit mariotestino.com,
