This week's object crush is the stunning timber blocks 'Trift' by Judith Seng. As described on Judith Seng's website;

Trift explores the ideal of perfect, high-gloss surfaces by creating and destroying them within the same object. Each form and surface derives from the individual size, characteristics and gradual transformations over time of the underlying tree-log.

I am so taken with the sheer gorgeousness of them! You definitely need more than one!

My object crush this week is the 'Lean' floor lamp by Swedish designer Jenny Back. I love the bronze detail on the arm attachment, bewdiful!

It also comes in a desk lamp version.

We are off to the snow on Thursday and I can't wait! Although a trip to the snow involves a 13 hour car trip as living in the driest state of Australia means that we don't have any ski fields! So the closet is the stunning Falls Creek over in Victoria. Whilst I love where we are staying (picture the most idyllic alpine setting down the bottom of the mountain), this gorgeous apartment complex 'Fjall' in the ski fields would be just divine! Designed by Salter Architects and with the interior design by the highly coveted Melbourne firm Hecker Guthrie (formally HP&G), it has a very distinct Scandinavian feel.

Hello all! Hope you have all been well. I have been a very slack blogger lately. Life just seems to have gotten in the way! I have been very saddened to hear the news of all the looting and riots over in London, many gorgeous buildings and lives have been damaged as a result. However things are still moving along in preparation of the 2012 Olympics next year and I am rather looking forward to seeing some of the architecture emerge. Whilst checking out Dezeen, I came across the design for the new aquatics centre that has recently been completed and was designed by Zaha Hadid. I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with her work. Some I absolutely admire where others seem a bit too futuristic and fluid like to me. But I think the aquatics centre is pretty stunning.. Check out Dezeen for more images.
