MAN AND THE MACHINE
A new furniture range by Blainey North
Justin Miller Art
10A Roylston St, Paddington
Blainey North’s furniture collection is the direct result of her experience in high-end interior design and her broad-ranging intellectual curiosity.
Ideas, which begin as bespoke for a particular project find wider application and the concepts, into which she deep dives, provide layers of richness to her designs.
While drawing on a wide spectrum of art and cultural influences the furniture and lighting pieces have a distinct Blainey North signature – luxurious, crafted and glamorous.
It is fascinating to follow an idea from its full creative expression, be it in art, film or design. Some designers struggle to express this process in words: it is entirely intuitive. For others, the words help: the struggle to articulate a concept allows them to refine and crystallize it.
Blainey North falls into the latter category. Stimulated by an image of Hong Kong at night with the layered pattern-making of a thousand densely packed sky-rise buildings, cut through the middle by the fluid amber of car headlights – it is both gestural and formulaic.
