Iridescent Glass and Canary-Yellow Cushions Soften Up This Architectural Furniture Collection
We first fell in love with the bright, geometric designs of up-and-coming Australian designer Elliot Bastianon when we spotted his Donald Judd–esque acoustic paneled bench a few years back. His latest works, on display this month at M2 Gallery in Sydney (reminding us yet again that now would be a perfect time for an Australian vacation), maintain the designer’s strong linear emphasis and poppy use of color. Entirely designed and manufactured by Bastianon, “Straight Lines” takes space and gridded repetition to a textured, playful level: colored cushions bulging from exposed wooden sofa frames — pick your ultra-soothing hue of canary yellow, sage, or powdery blue — and rectangular tables layered with a hint of iridescent glass. Bastianon’s furniture is crisp, sculptural — and would look great in your living room.
