In Conversation | Multi-Disciplinary Designer Stefanie Brechbuehler


Designing in one of the most profiled cities in the world, we want to know, what’s something most people would be surprised to learn about New York City?

Stefanie Brechbuehler: We love stoop (steps leading up to an apartment or house) culture, especially in Brooklyn. In a city with scarce private outdoor space, stoop culture is essential to the community and its character. People decorate their stoops with plants and their kids’ art; they’ve also become a place to gather and have a glass of wine and something to eat. It’s beautiful to behold, especially during the warmer months when the positive atmosphere is infectious.

Masseria Moroseta by Studio Andrew Trotter

In Conversation | Multi-Disciplinary Designer Andrew Trotter


Architect, interior designer, product designer, fashion designer, design consultant, magazine editor, and studio founder; the name Andrew Trotter denotes many things. Andrew graduated from interior design in Australia in 1994 before moving back to the UK to work in both product design and fashion design. Openhouse Magazine – centred on art, design, architecture and culture – was Andrew’s first independent project, which he founded together with photographer Mari Luz Vidal in 2014. In addition to being available digitally, the biannual magazine is sold in more than 600 stores worldwide. 

In 2012, Andrew was approached for his first architectural commission, a boutique hotel in Puglia, Italy. Masseria Moroseta, as it’s now called, subsequently launched Studio Andrew Trotter, a multi-disciplinary design office encompassing architecture, interior design, product design and design consultancy.

We sat down with Andrew to explore what inspires him – people, places, landscapes, materials, traditions – and how each is in line with his ethos of honesty and simplicity.

Multi-Disciplinary Designer Omer Arbel’s New Monograph


Organised by four thematic chapters, the book profiles remarkable projects from works for renowned lighting brand Bocci – of which he is co-founder and creative director, to furniture and private homes. The book also comprises Illustrations, drawings, product photography, essays by guest contributors and excerpts of historical texts from writers and thinkers including Sigmund Freud.

Israeli born Omer was raised in Vancouver and trained as an architect, interning in Barcelona and Vancouver. While he moves between disciplines, his architectural training informs and characterises his works not only through materiality but in the way they inhabit the spaces around them. Focal themes of his work include the intrinsic mechanical, physical, and chemical qualities of materials and the exploration of light as a medium.

Highly awarded, his pieces have been exhibited at the V&A museum and Spatzio Rosanna Orlandi amongst others.
