A Sydney Eatery Inspired by An Icon of Mexican Architecture

While New York restaurant design is currently all about the blue banquette, we spent the weekend swooning over the rustier, more terracotta hues of the seating at this airy new Mexican restaurant in Sydney. Called Fonda, it was designed by Melbourne's up-and-coming Studio Esteta and inspired by both Mexican architecture — particularly the work of Luis Barragán — and the restaurant's coastal surroundings.

A New Book Documents the Architectural Mash-Ups of One of Earth’s Most Mystical Locales

Pretty much everyone is a travel photographer on Instagram these days, and there's nothing we like better than when one of our favorite photographers heads somewhere far-flung. But for Brian Ferry's latest project — a book called The Deepest Lake, which documents Ferry's 2014 trip to Kashmir — Instagram didn't seem like the proper vehicle on which to be seen. "When I post photos online, it can feel insignificant," Ferry says. "People scroll past it once and then move on. I want people to have the time and the space to really look at a photo, and so I had the idea to make a book."

Our 10 Most Popular Posts of 2017

It always feels a little strange for us to look back at the previous year each December; when you run a publication, not to mention a major annual event, your mind is always, always fully consumed by thoughts of what's ahead. And yet it's now a Sight Unseen tradition to spend the final week of December reflecting back on the prior year, and so we've taken time out to do just that, starting with our top 10 most popular posts of 2017.

Cassina This Will Be the Place

This 90-Year-Old Company’s New Book is Anything But Old-Fashioned

Cassina's 90th-anniversary monograph, This Will Be the Place, is, quite frankly, a remarkably cool book for such a furniture company to produce. Rather than proselytizing about all of the great pieces their workshop has produced over the years, Cassina looks both outward and towards the future, asking others to weigh in on what exactly the concept of "the future" means at this point and what the domestic landscape will look like when we reach it.

Memphis Meets Secession in L.A.’s Coolest New Bar Interior

When the New York interiors firm Home Studios presented its first collection of lighting and furniture at our OFFSITE show earlier this year, the pieces were a culmination of an unusually prolific track record of custom design and fabrication. Having seen the firm's newest project, the West Hollywood bar Bibo Ergo Sum, in which Home designed every single element but the chairs, we can only imagine how ridiculously good their second collection is going to be.

These 3D Interior Images Have Us Drooling Over a Tile Catalog

In the old days, this would have been one hell of an expensive photoshoot: Sourcing design icons-in-the-making from people like Lex Pott, Faye Toogood, and Sabine Marcelis; building out a set; and then painting, styling, and photographing the whole thing. But perhaps this will be known as the year when the rendered, three-dimensional image became almost more exciting — and decidedly cheaper — than the real thing, thereby making it almost de rigueur for brands to invest in these kinds of digital set-ups, no matter the product.
