INSIDE: for sale
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 2/03/2008

HARRY There’s a Jorn Utzon house for sale. The architect behind the Sydney Opera House built this concrete and glass 6-bedroom home in the UK (West Common Way, Harpenden Herts to be exact). It’s selling through The Modern House for a whopping 2.5 million pounds. Do check it out online - there are lots more pics and some really great interiors.

HARRY: One of my favourite sites is Treehugger. Their design and architecture coverage always has something of interest. Check out this cool kitchen island - everything you need in one smart spot. The Compacta is by Artificio - a Spanish design company.

INSIDE: good art

HARRY: This is a quickie - I’ve got to get ready for work and feed the kids! My friend Liane just sent me a link to Chris Jordan’s extraordinary work. Chris is a photographer and his latest works depict America’s mass consumption. The series is called Intolerable Beauty. Above are mobile phones and cigarette butts. (I don’t smoke but I do have a bunch of old mobiles I’m not sure what to do with.) Such intolerable beauty.

INSIDE: living
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 1/22/2008

HARRY: Having returned from two years in LA and settled back into Sydney I feel slightly jealous of any fellow Aussie living OS. Vicki Archer’s book, My French Life was certainly fuel for that fire. My friend Helen is a great fan of Vicki’s and showed me the book over the weekend. Vicki left Sydney a few years ago for France and renovated a beautiful old home in the country. Julie Gibbs at Penguin/Lantern published Archer’s book - Gibbs’ has got a great eye for beauty. Photographer Carla Coulson shot the pics for the book (I worked with Carla when I was deputy of the Sydney Magazine and she does do great work). The book’s definitely worth looking at…life overseas is worth thinking about. Although Tokyo interests me much more that France….

INSIDE: reuse recycle
Posted by Cerentha Harris on 1/20/2008

HARRY: Here’s a good ‘reuse’ object. Liz Grotyohann, is a New Jersey-based graphic designer uses old magazines to create these classic vases. She lines them with resin so they are watertight. I also came across Chilean designer Rodrigo Alonso Schramm’s N+ew stool on treehugger He has taken electronic waste and created a stool. I’m not sure I like the look of it but I love the idea.
