Bringing slightly different layer to today’s post with the Finnon Glen house in VIC, Australia designed by Doherty Lynch. Shortlisted for the Australian Interior Design Awards this year (among other excellent projects), I was mostly attracted to the balanced combination between architectural clarity and the ease of the furnishings. The result seems like a natural gesture by the designer without forced and unnecessary design features but with just enough visual interest to please the eye. Moreover, this type of design allows flexibility and opportunity for the clients in their day-to-day lifestyle. Would love to hear your thoughts. Photography by Sonia Mangiapane

PA1 (an acronym for Proper Audio) is a minimal mountable aluminium bodied bluetooth speaker, made by Australian studio Proper. Designers tried to create a combination of laconic beauty and powerful sound. The result is being currently founded through Kickstarter. Here is how they describe it: PA1 connects wirelessly to virtually every smart phone, tablet and computer, regardless of operating system. We’ve selected a premium Bluetooth module, with close consideration to antenna placement ensuring clear, consistent pairing and audio streaming. PA1 also remembers up to 5 devices, so you’ll only ever need to pair the first time you turn it on. The On, Off, and Pairing commands are operated intuitively via a single button. The device is versatile, it can be moved from one room to another, mounted on a wall or placed on a shelf or desk. The interchangeable fabric covers are available in black and white.
Industrial designers John Van Den Nieuwenhuizen from Australia and Vitor Santa Maria from Brazil have collaborated to design the HiddenRadio, which is currently being funded through Kickstarter. Their approach to their work is simple product design that is both innovative and intuitive. The minimal HiddenRadio & Bluetooth Speaker design connects and captivates the user through its intuitive functionality. When asleep it hides all its functions. To turn it on you simply twist and lift the cap. The further you lift the cap the more internal volume is created and will amplify to over 80dB of crystal clear sound. Although it offers Bluetooth technology, if you don’t have a Bluetooth device, a 3.5mm audio input plug is available. The battery life is also an impressive feature, offering over 30 hours of power. A beautiful, unobtrusive and simple device, which I think is well worth backing.
