Lighting: SATTLER

SATTLER

Sattler team design team consists of creative talent, Ulrich Sattler, and Sattler team internal and external designers. In a reciprocal process of work, conceptual designs and new developments are created, which consistently follow the  principle of “Nothing gets developed which already exists on the market in the exact same or in a comparable form.”. Following this principle has continuously enabled Sattler team to surprise the market with new developments and innovations in the last few years and has helped the team to establish the design ideas as an integral part of the lighting industry.

Sattler Team lighting design inspire my Japanese sleep/ study room design because if the shape the and light balance the colour of my room design. My sleeping/study room design is focus on the dimension of shape, wooden dark colour and modern design to combine the concept of Japanese traditional and modern into one design.

Australian Wallpaper and Fabric Designer ~ Florence Broadhurst

 

Florence Broadhurst was years ahead of her time, the complex, eccentric and talented Florence Broadhurst was born in rural Queensland, Australia in 1899. By the time of her death in 1977 Broadhurst had lived and worked in Australia, Asia, and England; performed professionally on stage; been befriended by royalty; exhibited her paintings; and started an internationally successful wallpaper company whose success was based upon her own designs.

Adorning the walls, floors and furnishings of London nightclubs, Parisian salons, Cate Blanchett’s family home and even the set of MasterChef are her designs; designs that were created over three decades ago but are still gathering new and passionate fans all over the world.

Florence Broadhurst has put Australia on the map for international design.

A multi-talented legend, Broadhurst expressed herself creatively through multiple mediums, platforms and continents around the world. After winning a singing competition in 1915, Broadhurst started performing in various towns and cities in Queensland. By the early 1920s, she was performing in India, South-East Asia and China. In 1926, Broadhurst founded a modern academy of arts in Shanghai, known as the Broadhurst Academy, offering tuition in violin, pianoforte, voice production, modern ballroom dancing, classical dancing, musical culture and journalism. Never one to settle, Broadhurst moved to London and reinvented herself as Madame Pellier, running a dress salon on Bond Street in 1933.

After spending more than a decade in the United Kingdom, Broadhurst returned to Australia and settled in Sydney where she started painting enthusiastically and prolifically. Transforming her creative talent into a business opportunity, she started a revolutionary wallpaper business in 1959, creating hundreds of unique and luxurious patterns with rich and vibrant colours all perfectly matching her flamboyant personality. By the mid 1960s, her company monopolised the Australian market and started exporting to America, Peru, Paris, the Middle East and Norway. She continued to work actively until her death in 1977 at the age of 78.
In 1977 she was bludgeoned to death with a large piece of timber in her Paddington studio.  The murder was never solved, but there has been some speculation that Broadhurst was a victim of serial killer John Wayne Glover,

Balinese- Interior Wall Decoration

Reflect and be at one with the earth. Traditional Balinese buildings seek to be in harmony with the environment.

Traditional Balinese house interiors are built almost entirely of organic materials. They use natural materials such as bamboo, woven bamboo, coconut wood, oak wood, Teak wood and various other beautiful local wood in all natural shades. Rattan, wicker and clay were also other materials that were used and found locally.

With design elements of plants, flowers, natural construction materials, and large open spaces Bali interior walls are lined with nature inspired decoration and materials.

Hand Carved Teak Wood Wall panelling is used for eye catching wall pieces,  and other different materials were also used for wood carvings for the walls. Brick and stone were used in a variety of ways for wall features especially bathrooms or entry ways and are usually set on wooden tones and or a bright white painted background for the beautiful art to be displayed.

Open planned living allows walls to be filled with all the art work inspired by the local people and create a cheerful & harmonious environment.

Lighting: Vanuatu

Traditional lighting in Vanuatu is by no means ‘advanced’. Even to this day, most lighting in households involves the use of primitive and potentially dangerous controlled fires, in either indoor or outdoor fire pits, sconces or ceiling applications. This is primarily due to less than 30 percent of households in the Vanuatu islands having access to a power grid, but also references their devotion to tradition and strong community-based culture; fire pits can be areas of communing, gathering or worship. Where electricity is available, simple light bulbs are often crudely rigged to supply light in its most utilitarian form, without much concern to aesthetics. Another clever source of light is the use of old plastic bottles filled with water and small amounts of chemicals, that are cemented to the roofs of dimly lit buildings to supply surprisingly vivid illumination during daylight hours.

Outside of the culture itself, lighting styled of Vanuatu culture draws influence from the natural aspects of the area, such as bamboo structuring and themes of marine life and tropical living. Lighting such as this is most commonly constructed as lamps, however it can be demonstrated as sconces, chandeliers and bold outdoor lights.

Elysian Fields Designed by Dan Funderburgh.

 

Elysian Fields Designed by Dan Funderburgh

Elysian Fields is a dense, intricate floral that utilizes carnivorous plants and bats instead of roses and robins. We love the irreverence of these unexpected elements within the classic stylings of the pattern work. Chose Antique Pink on Oatmeal for a soft traditional look or Licorice for some serious edge.

Flavor Paper produces wallpaper by hand screened and digital printing, sometimes both for special projects. All aspects of production are in-house, so we can maintain our exacting perfectionist standards. We use water based or eco-solvent inks to be as green as possible and only print on the finest materials. Flavor Paper quality is unsurpassed.

OAK- Flooring

Balinese   OAK FLOORING

Grand Oak Balinese takes its inspiration from the rich and diverse culture of Polynesia and the traditional Bali sculptures throughout this beautiful and happy place. Balinese Oak features sunburnt orange and warm brown tones. The rustic colours complement dark leather Balinese furniture and light walls. Balinese Oak undergoes a special smoked process to enhance its colour, depth and natural Balinese inspired characteristics and also provides maximum durability and long-lasting use around the home.

The authentic look and feel of Grand Oak Balinese, is further enhanced by brushing the surface, in order to accentuate its natural oak grain structure. This is all done by our timber hand-crafting artists who use age-old hand tools on every individual engineered board.

Grand Oak consists of two timber layers, a hardy hand scraped European Oak timber top and a stabilizing multiple core timber base. All our oak floors are pre-finished with a tongue and groove on the ends and sides for easy installation.

Oak products come in short and long timber boards to create variety and excitement in your Grand Oak engineered floor. Some boards are clean and others feature small and large knots and grained patterns, this natural variation that provides a unique look and feel in your home. Colour will vary. Engineered boards will vary across every floor. It is this dissimilarity that gives timber its natural beauty and appeal.

Spatial Flooring for a Dinning room

 

Stone Flooring for a Dinning room

The sophisticated grey-brown tones of Pietra Bronzea limestone include striking bronze metallic inclusions. The nature of the product has made it the stone of choice for leading architects and designers.
Natural stone has been an all-time favourite for flooring and other applications. There have been several innovations in tile design but new technology has not been able to take away the charm and glory of natural stone flooring.
When you combine the enormous range of colours and textures of stone with the many different cuts and edge treatments available, you have an almost unlimited number of designer options to choose from. You can then choose whether or not you want a natural, semi-gloss or gloss surface treatment. Every stone floor is a unique work of craftsmanship.
In warm and hot climates, nothing is better than stone. If you experience cooler winters in your area, it gives you the opportunity to add area rugs during the cooler months, for a seasonal decorator change. If you prefer, you can even install a heated floor for warmth on even the coldest nights.
Unlike carpet floors, which often hide allergens that can be difficult or impossible to remove, stone floors can be easily vacuum cleaned or washed. This makes them a hygienic choice.
Yes, your initial investment in a stone floor is likely to be more expensive than most of the alternatives. However, when it comes to value for money, you will discover that there are many advantages to stone floors. They will last a lifetime and add tremendous value to your home should you decide to sell. In the long run, stone flooring is one of the most cost effective investments you can make in your home.

Polardur Brushed:

An anthracite/grey quartz-limestone with 40% quartz and 60% limestone, Polardur is highly resistant and durable with a beautiful homogeneity in color (sprinkled with occasional very art-like white quartz-veining).

Price: If it was just a small project/ order (say for just one living room), we would probably price the Pietra Bronzea (brushed or honed finish) tiles at $130+GST per squ. metre and 20mm thick honed slab at $320+GST per sqm. (slabs vary in size, current ones are 2750x1500mm).

PECHA KUCHA

TOPIC: PECHA KUCHA- MY INSPIRATIONS AND INFLUENCES FOR MY FUTURE DESIGN CAREER FROM LIFE AND THE HISTORY AND THEORY OF DESIGN UNIT.

‘Pecha Kucha’ comes from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat.”

Tips to help you

Consider your Presentation Style.

Are you a presenter that tells stories and uses slides as a visual backdrop?
Do you need to prepare your presentation with detailed notes?
Are you the type that bullet points everything you need to say on a slide?
Whichever it is, you will need to be fully aware of your presentation style and keep to it.

If you are the type that likes to talk off the cuff, flowing and ebbing to the crowd’s response, the format of Pecha Kucha will make this hard. Writing everything down for fear of overrunning the 20 second per slide forma can kill your flow, as it is a struggle to switch from usual presentation technique. Referring to notes frequently can cost audience engagement.

Keep it Light.

A slide presentation should not be used as a training manual. There are just some topics that don’t work at Pecha Kucha. Explaining complex theories or scientific problems is one. It goes so fast anyway, so the heavy stuff just goes over the head. the best topics for Pecha Kucha are anecdotal stories which work great for the portfolio stories it originally started with.

In the real world, your presentation format may be in the form or a class lecture, a cozy portfolio review, or staged performance etc., regardless of what it is, be aware of how much a presentation can do before it become too much.

The Power of One.

One thing to keep strictly to when designing a Pecha Kucha presentation is that your total presentation should only communicate 1 key topic. Furthermore, each slide should be restricted to 1 point only. The key to keeping things simple is to ask “What am I trying to communicate?” and “Do I really need make this point?”

While this restriction is a must for a 20 second pace, this should be also a key requirement for presentations in the real world. Even with the opportunity of having more time to read the content on each slide.

Many presentations meander badly, or have far to many confusing bullet points on a slide. There is something to be said on the efficiency and impact of keeping slide presentations simple.

The Tale of 2 Presenters.

There are actually two presenters at every presentation; you and your slide. You really figure out the value of both “Presenters” at Pecha Kucha. You can use one to support the other, or even design the presentation in a way that when combined together they tell a much bigger story. Therefore, it is a real pity to only repeat to the audience what the bullet points on each of your slide say. Furthermore, this also means that most slide decks can be reduced by 50%.

Keep the Presentation Sharp.

In Pecha Kucha you are advised to keep the verbal element to 2-3 sentences a slide.
This also makes sense in normal presentations as well. Focus on the points you are trying to communicate and that will prevent you from rambling on more than you need to.

Pick a Topic You are Familiar With.

At Pecha Kucha always pick a topic that you are familiar with, or willing to get familiar with. When you are familiar with a topic it just rolls off your tongue naturally, especially in presentations with time constraints. Oh, don’t underestimate the value of practice, it does make perfect.

Pause for Effect

One thing that was really hard to create at Pecha Kucha was strategic pauses to let points sink in. With the rapid 20 second pace, even giving people time to laugh was almost impossible. This means you could come across like you are racing through your presentation.

This challenge makes you realise and cherish the importance of strategic pauses in a presentation. When you are now designing a presentation that has the luxury of more time, you can now use this time efficiently to drive home key points, increase audience engagement, or even as a great icebreaker.

Think, research, design:

A simple presentation format containing:

  • 20 images, each for 20 seconds
  • The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images
  • Regardless of speaker or topic, every Pecha Kucha presentation is exactly

    6 minutes and 40 seconds

  • Have FUN!
