Creative State of Mind




Creativity is defined by ideas, imagination and inventiveness. To me, a creative state of mind is everything, and in this issue, it’s the undercurrent of the esteemed 10: a forecast of the 30 Australian, international and multi-disciplinary names to know in 2023.

A creative state of mind also informs the intersection of design – from furniture and lighting studio Apparatus founder Gabriel Hendifar’s Manhattan apartment to a ‘70s symbol of the modernist movement in Northwest Spain. It’s also the essence of our feature Material Duality, where we see fabric transcend high fashion, furniture and iconic lighting, and our edit of consciously-designed products for 2023.

Finally, we leave you with five leading designers of our time and their defining pieces through our Detail pages. We hope this issue reminds you of what designer Andrew Trotter aptly points out, “We are doing something creative; we are the luckiest people in the world.”
