thedesignfiles This is Kon Karapanagiotides , founder and CEO of the @asrc1. Everyone who came along to our exhibition opening last night was truly transfixed by this incredible man, the moving words he had to say about the plight of asylum seekers in Australia, and the optimism he has for the future. 'My definition of us succeeding is, when a person seeks asylum in this country they are given the opportunity, equal to any one else, to participate and succeed and to fulfil their potential... in a community that has informed and compassionate attitudes and that sees them as people, and in a political ecosystem that is lawful and fair'. Now more than ever, it's time to be open and vocal if you share this sentiment. I do! 🏼 Photo and quote from @dumbofeather. ️️ 2d

thedesignfiles During our recent trip to New York, we were inspired to document some of the awesome apartments we visited, belonging to a number of talented Australians we met on our travels. We're sharing the first of those today - the stunning studio apartment of Australian stylist @glenproebstel and his partner @larry.dennison in Manhattan. With its moody greys and pared back vibe this space is Glen P to a T! Gorgeous pics by @evegwilson, link in profile 🏼 7d

thedesignfiles It's no secret we're big fans of Sydney artist and designer @rachelcastleandthings - we love her bold artwork, her embroidered pieces and her gorgeous bed linen too. Rachel's latest product range includes these amazing origami paper sculptures, sourced on a recent trip to India. Lightweight but surprisingly robust, they lend a bold, contemporary statement to any room. Place on a side table, amongst piles of books on a bookshelf, or suspend a cluster of them from the ceiling for a playful hanging sculpture. Just the thing you never knew you needed!
