Who or what has influenced your style?

Design, as I have experienced it, is largely a collaborative experience. Style seems to me to be the result of solving design problems elegantly, and if that is a collaborative exercise, I would say that my peers have influenced me most.

What designer of the past or present do you admire most?

Whilst studying a tutor referred me to the work of Geoffrey Bawa. Though his focus is design for tropical environments, there are some valuable lessons in his work that can be applied in the Brisbane context. His work is also beautiful to look at...

What are you excited about right now in the world of design?

The opportunities that the sustainability crisis presents, and the shift towards warmer incarnations of minimalism.

phorm interiors' latest work::cinco bistro

The original interior at Cinco Bistro was completed by Phorm Interiors in April 2007.

When chef/owner, Peter Stubbs, acquired the tenancy next door, Phorm Interiors were once again commissioned to take on the design of the new space, incorporating a dining area, wine storage, new open plan kitchen and a stunning new bar.

As with our original concept, bold print features heavily in the design - focussing on a customised printing of the Florence Broadhurst designed 'Spanish Plate'.

This is highlighted with a series of exciting natural materials: recycled hardwood detailing to the bar top and surrounds; a spectacular wall feature of recycled brickwork; a stunning wine cabinet feature with copper detailing and handmade Moroccan hexagonal tiles to the bar front.

The overall design layers patterns and textures together, creating a bold and interesting aesthetic.

phorm interiors' latest work :: petrie terrace project

When Phorm Interiors was presented with the opportunity of renovating one of the few terrace houses in inner-city Brisbane, the challenge was to create a comfortable living area, complete with storage options, kitchen, dining and sitting area within a 9 metre x 6 metre space.

The design was guided by a stunning collection of indigenous artifacts, from the clients previous life in Papua New Guinea. Highlighting these strong works with a series of finishes - American Walnut Veneers; Calacatta Marble; Japan-blacked American Oak - was the key to creating a bold new design.

Joinery consists of a series of Japan-black cabinetry. Hidden within the base of the cabinetry is a 'secret' panel that discreetly opens to reveal a television on a 90 degree axis.

The design is further developed with custom designed furniture; stunning hand-made green tiled splashback; tan leather custom covered Eames Wire Chairs & a Piazza San Marco Pendant Lamp by Vico Magistretti for O-Luce.

drawn to abstraction...

Drawn to Abstraction, featuring the works of Krista Berga, Daniel Mafe & Judith Wright opens at Jan Manton Art on February 17, showing until March 27.

These three Brisbane-based artists feature quite heavily in the collections of many of our clients, so we are very excited to view their works on display, together, in the newly completed Jan Manton Art gallery, as designed by Phorm Interiors.

Jan Manton Art is at 1/93 Fortescue Street, Spring Hill.

The Gallery is open from Tuesday to Friday, by appointment, and Saturday 10AM to 4PM with no appointment necessary.

queensland floods::support brisbane

It has been a very difficult and emotional start to 2011.

Watching the floods unfold felt surreal as we saw the devastation that was wreaked upon our city.

To all those people who have been affected, our thoughts are with you.

Thank you to all of our clients, friends & business associates who have made contact with us to enquire on our well-being. Thankfully, no-one at Phorm Interiors have been directly affected, however each one of us have had the floods touch the lives of people we care about.

A lot of businesses in Brisbane are doing it tough, so please support Brisbane and buy locally.

At Phorm Interiors we are committed to supporting our local manufacturers, suppliers and tradespeople.

We ask you to share this commitment alongside us.
