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, 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.

Phorm Studio/Pod model...

Awaiting D.A. approval, our NEW Studio/Pod comes to life in model (Ph)orm.
Can Melody and James (Atelier Chen Hung Architects) be any cleverer or more creative?
I think not...
