NOW SHOWING: Kunst Armchair

The name Kunst is derived from the Danish word for “art”. With Karimoku’s top-of-the-line manufacturing facilities in Japan and 70 years’ worth of accumulated craftsmanship techniques, Kunst has made possible the productization of one-of-a-kind artwork that, up until now, could only have been made over many years of manual work. The aim was to create timeless masterpieces of furniture, realizing the highest sense of aesthetics, breathing life into the smallest details—creating that which could be loved for many years, not because it particularly stood out but because it was simply beautiful.

The Kunst Armchair (shown) is a stunning example of the artisanal craftsmanship and modern design.

The Kunst Armchair is currently on display and available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

Akin to the classic Melbourne tram with its sewn leather holding straps and exquisitely sculpted wooden interiors, the collection exudes durability, style, and honour.

By reflecting the utilitarian luxury seen in citizen-led manufacturing eras, the Gunzel design recaptures the poetry of fine, handmade design details that appeal to all human senses and evoke emotional connections. Gunzel embodies the essence of democratic design, with each piece showcasing the raw dignity and beauty of timber; stripped-back forms with grace and simplicity.

Macaron Lamp: Sculpted Light

The MACARON table light pays homage to the beauty and complex structures of crystalline stone. Enclosed in opposing domes of delicate handblown glass, the stone becomes a moonscape afloat in its own cosmos. The concept is based on the principle of illuminating stone, and the name refers to the light’s similarity in shape to the famed French meringue confection.

Natural imperfections in the glass and the diversity of structures in the stone make each light a unique original. The purity of the natural materials and the artisanship applied in processing them have given rise to a light of extraordinary ambience. Produced using traditional techniques, MACARON is characteristic of the distinctive and enduring aesthetic of the BROKIS brand.

NOW AVAILABLE: Ditzel Lounge Chair

“Three steps forward and two steps back still means I’ve taken a step in the right direction!”

Nanna Ditzel (1923-2005), with her postmodernism attitude and rebellion against tradition, became a leading figure in the renewal of Danish design in the 1990’s, well after her 70th birthday. Very often, her works had a subjective starting point, which was contrary to specific problems to be solved. However, she had a magnificent ability to transform her artistic dreams into very functional and purposeful designs.

The Ditzel Lounge Chair – designed in 1953 by Nanna Ditzel and made by Fredericia – is a fantastic example of her forward thinking attitude. Available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

Now on display: Bilia Lamp by Gio Ponti

Nothing more than a sphere, set in an apparently impossible feat of balance, upon a cone that serves as the base. One of Gio Ponti’s many compositional magic tricks, designed in 1932. The counterbalancing of two elementary geometric forms results in an original, perfectly proportioned object. An unpretentious composition, enriched by the extraordinary balance of its proportions and the stylish discretion of non-reflective materials.The light is diffused and valorized by the geometrical simplicity of the design. In designing Bilia, Gio Ponti imagined a smaller version in a range of “spray colours”. From those handwritten notes of the original project, FontanaArte presents Bilia Mini in new breathtaking chromatic variations.

Available and on display at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

In a seemingly effortless flow, the lines of the modules meet and merge into an integrated whole.

Now on display: Flowerpot Lamp

The Flowerpot Table Lamp designed in 1969 by Verner Panton, reflects a break from convention to embrace a more open, modern mentality that promoted peace and harmony. Such was the mindset of its designer, Verner Panton, one of the most forward-thinking talents of his time.

Verner Panton started out as a painter before studying architecture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. After an apprenticeship with architect / designer Arne Jacobsen, Panton pursued a path in furniture and interior design, where he became famous for his avant-garde designs. Such as chairs with no legs and a sofa placed vertically against the wall. In the 60’s and 70’s, his passion for designing entire environments led to immersive interiors featuring his hypnotic patterns and futuristic designs for furniture, lighting, wallpapers, posters and rugs. Panton’s pioneering use of materials, colours and shapes earned him a reputation as a visionary.

The Flowerpot series consitsts of several different models, including three pendants and two table lamps – all in a wide range of colours. The Flowerpot lights and the entire &Tradition collection are available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

New Release: Geometric Pendant by Brokis

The new Geometric Pendant – designed by Boris Klimek and Lenka Damova for Brokis – accentuates the aesthetic expression and structure of BROKISGLASS, which itself is remarkably distinctive. The collection is defined by basic geometric shapes that characterize the overall contours of the lights and instil them with a singular graphic element to achieve a striking contrast with the animate, almost sculptural makeup of the glass. The suspension components make up the glass geometric shapes, their edges rendered in black profiles.

The graphic aesthetics of the collection allow the lights to be arranged in a great number of final shapes – circle and oval – either as solitary lights or as a sort of jigsaw puzzle, which in the hands of architects can result in an endless variety of lighting combinations. Thus, the concept surpasses its primary function as a lighting fixture and opens the door to large-format blocks of light and other uncommon compositions. For the majority of the solitary lights, each side can be finished in glass of a different colour for even greater variability and originality. Available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

Offset Sofa by Norm Architects for Menu

The Offset Sofa range – designed by Norm Architects for Menu – is the result of research into ‘balance’. The studio wanted to create a sofa as simply as possible while embracing a set of paradoxes: making it substantial yet delicate in appearance, architectural yet inviting and homey. In the studio, the designers experimented with offsetting – playing with proportions, narrow armrests versus a thick generous seat, supported by four stubby metal legs. The clean-lined boxy shape is inspired by minimalist art, gently softened for a welcoming expression and maximised for comfort.

NEW Release – Kotan Stool by Naoto Fukasawa

The latest product to emerge from Conde House’s ongoing collaboration with internationally acclaimed designer Naoto Fukasawa, KOTAN Stool (Kitchen and Bar heights) is an optically light, literally light, yet materially robust stool that is built to last.

Launched in 2020, KOTAN utilises Japanese ash and leather or fabric upholstery to create a pared-down yet friendly form that fits perfectly into both residential and contract contexts, in particular hospitality settings like restaurants and cafés.

The name KOTAN, meaning village in the local Ainu language, represents the stools’ origin from Japan’s northernmost island Hokkaido, which is also shown by the use of locally grown natural ash wood.

Sustainability is key here: minimal material usage and a design language that transcends trends make for a long-life, timeless product that avoids obsolescence.

NEW RELEASE: Honey by CocoFlip

Honey takes cues from the humble honey dipper’s soft curves. The stepped geometric silhouette is a nod to a stylised Art Deco sensibility. Honey is hand made by some of Melbourne’s finest craftspeople – a collaboration with Bendigo Pottery, Charles Sandford and glass artist Amanda Dziedzic.

Offered in slip cast ceramic stoneware, or hand turned American White Oak, a number of glazes and finishes are available. White or pink hand blown glass completes the piece, and provides a soft, diffuse glow. Honey is a sculptural statement piece that celebrates Melbourne’s local artisans and provides a subtle ambient light.

Hand-crafted light: Lightline by Brokis

The Lightline collection is a celebration of glass as an artistic medium. The concept of a line of light is rooted in the varying characteristics of the material and its forms. The design employs the effect of light uniformly dispersed over a sandblasted surface, which in profile creates the impression of a luminous line. The upper surface, sandblasted by hand, is treated with a special nano coating to prevent the accumulation of dust and smudges. The collection comprises four table lamps that cast a light of intimate character.

NEW Rev Stool: by Adam Cornish for NAU

Calling on the world-class metal spinning facilities in Victoria, which are most often used to create industrial items, the Rev Stool was inspired by the very act of spinning. The profile of a person seated on a bar stool, when spun 360 degrees to create a silhouette, is the simple logic informing this design. This creates an original design language and ergonomic advantages.

NEW Artworks by Min Woo Bang: On display at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

Min-Woo Bang’s canvases explores the genre of romantic landscape painting. His latest series, ‘Storm In Paradise’, invites a deeper emtional response and engagement through mysterious and shifting lines of sight.

Bang captures nature’s transitional moods in a suite of breathtaking landscapes, engaging our senses with the emotional and aesthetic qualities of the land and sky that echo human moods. While nature remains his dominant source of inspiration, the artist’s differential viewpoints enhance the audience’s personal encounter with landscape.  These landscapes are of no place in particular; rather, they evoke a sense of time passing and memory.

A selection of Min Woo Bang’s current works are currently on display and available at Aptos Cruz Galleries.

ASO 80th Anniversary Limited Edition Prints: Now at Aptos Cruz.

To celebrate the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra’s 80th year, Aptos Cruz has embarked on a unique fundraising collaboration with Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, to create a tangible memory of the ASO’s 2016 season.

Six artists who have a long association with South Australia were commissioned to create an individual artwork inspired by their response to music and/or the ASO.

Thanks to the generosity of a donor who is covering the artist commissioning costs, project partner Aptos Cruz Galleries have worked with the ASO to produce a limited edition of 36 giclee prints (of each artwork) plus six complete portfolio sets.

Featured artists include one of Australia’s foremost painters Annette Bezor, Taipei-based David Reid who is known for his distinctive ink on paper works, two of Australia’s leading contemporary artists Jim Thalassoudis and Dianne Gall, figurative painter and 2015 Archibald finalist Stewart Macfarlane, and London-based James Cochran, aka Jimmy C, who is known for his distinctive street art including his David Bowie mural in Brixton, London.

Come in and see the complete series of prints at Aptos Cruz Galleries. Funds raised will go to supporting the ASO’s 80th Season.
