Sunday inspiration — “Once in a Lifetime”; Talking Heads and Brian Eno (with performance production by Toni Basil).
These videos were some of the first things that inspired me to make art.  At a very early age, it lit a lasting curiosity in alternative music, performance art, and technical production.  It is amazing how the simplest things can have such large impacts.
In a cab ride from Melbourne airport to my hotel on Friday night, this song happened to play in the background and flashed all sorts of adolescent memories.  Good stuff.

Sunday inspiration — Chromo Sapiens by Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, here installed at the 2019 Venice Biennale.
Not much more to be said except that maybe we should think more about how different materials and color can change our perceptions of space... and perhaps our moods.

Sunday inspiration — this colorwork by @axelvervoordt 
Yes, a bit obviously perfect for an inspiration post... but as I begin working for my hardest and most critical clients (me and my wife on our new house), I keep referring back to the consistent serenity and spaciousness of Vervoordt’s base color/tone palettes.  This is a nutshell example of his sorcery in action; deceivingly simply and effortlessly presented.  Some perfect inspiration as we today finalise some of our canvas colours.
Happy Sunday.

We are excited and proud to today announce a collaboration between Dylan Farrell Design and Est Lighting ( @est_lighting ). EST’s core clients will have noticed various pieces of our furniture casually garnishing their Sydney showroom over the past few months; and more recently again at Est’s new Melbourne showroom.  During this time we have been planning a formal launch of our product in Australia -- this will now occur in time for the spring market, September 2019.  The Casual Dining Room featured here is part of a residence published in this month's @bellemagazineau .  This photo features our Harp Dining Table (which can currently be viewed in both Est’s Melbourne and Sydney showrooms) along with the BCAA Pendant by another of Est’s collaborators, Christopher Boots ( @christopherboots )  We look forward to the coming journey together and are proud of the friendship we have forged with the Est Lighting team to date.  Watch this space, please!

We are BEYOND flattered to have been honoured with the ‘Emerging Design Star’ award in the Belle Coco Republic Interior Design Awards, which is arguably the gold standard for Australian design.  To then have our work on the cover of the awards issue... well we are just beside ourselves, especially in light of the other talent that was on display.  We are humbled to be considered a rated part of the creative Australian community and look forward to helping push the bar in the future.  Congratulations to all of the participants.
Here is the ‘moody’ version of the cover shot.  Special thanks to Bellevarde construction for patiently helping us build this, and to our clients who were open minded enough to let us and Felix Forest into their finished home at 6am in order to achieve this photo aesthetic.  Also to the sponsors of our category, @snaiderosydney 🙌🏻

Sunday inspiration — TWA Flight Center by Eero Saarinen.
I used to so casually (when I was young, stupid, and a smoker) sit outside this terminal at JFK Airport in Queens, New York and catch cigarettes while waiting or returning on JetBlue flights to and from..... wherever.  These sorts of experiences growing up in New York were affective.  In this case, Saarinen’s neo-futurist, almost brutal work proved that narrative design need not be cliche — you can tell a somewhat literal visual story or have a theme blatantly running through a form and not have the result feel sophomoric.  Just need to have the guts to go all the way. .

Here is a less ‘editorial’, more analytical view at a kitchen we completed last year.  I love how the city and nature are inseparable here in Sydney, allowing us to appropriately play with interesting combinations of rustic/urban/earth/industrial.

Sunday inspiration — Trout Mask Replica; Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band.  While the rest of the world was fighting in the streets over whether to make love or war, in 1969 Captain Beefheart and His Magic Band instead for 8 months locked themselves inside a small rented house in the back suburbs of Woodland Hills, LA.  With no income other than welfare and contributions from relatives, they at times survived on a bare subsistence diet of a cup of beans a day.  Beefheart executed dictatorial control over the band’s lifestyle and resulting compositions.  They wrote and rehearsed 14+ hours every day under cult-like conditions, “sculpting” classically composed sonic renderings from improvised snippets pseudo-akin to John Cage.  Beefheart was not a trained musician, though his band was.  When they came out into the light and went into studio, the band recorded the 20 track album in a single 6 hour session.  The album changed music (and pop culture) as we know it, and is cited as core inspiration by many of today’s most revered and influential artists.  It is quietly on every notable critic’s ‘top 100’ list... and on first listen, almost every listener cannot imagine how or why in the world it would be appreciated.  Like the ultimate inside joke.  I have coined ‘logidiculism’ as a descriptor for this style which they trail-blazed and that today informs certain sensibilities throughout my own various works.  Whenever I am stuck in a funk of ‘typics’ and normality, I give this record a spin to shake up the snow globe, so to speak... and then return more cognisant to whatever archetypal plane I was on 79 minutes prior.  Today was one of those days.
