Jonathan Delafield Cook

 

I've recently discovered the very talented artist Jonathan Delafield Cook and his amazing collections. I am amazed that these aren't photographs, they're actually created using either charcoal on paper or oil on canvas.  You can learn more about him here.

 

Sou Fujimoto / Sofitel Melbourne

House N, Oita, Japan; Serpentine Pavilion, London, UK

A few weeks ago, EAT very generously took the team to listen to Sou Fujimoto talk about his work and practice at the Sofitel Melbourne. It was extremely inspiring to listen to such a passionate and considered architect talk about his love of nature and simplicity as well as his love of Tokyo and how the city inspired some of his most renowned works. He really took you on a journey from the early concept stages of the project to the final outcome, even making some of his most complex projects seem almost simple.

Collectively, the public toilet was our favourite. It has become such a tourist destination that it needs its own public toilets - go figure!

Oki Sato // Nendo

Happy Friday!

I've been a long-time admirer of Oki Sato and the work his studio, Nendo, creates. Their originality is truly inspiring - below are just a few of my favourites. In a perfect world, I'd buy the whole Nendo collection!
