In June I had the HUGE honour of speaking at the prestigious The DO Lectures! "Give the talk that you don’t normally do. Give the talk that scares you" - I did exactly that, looked at the silly lil’ things that make me ‘me’.
It was the most incredible event and It’s still inspiring me now, thank you for having me DO! Hit the play button above to give the talk a watch, I hope you like!
N.B There’s some excitable swearing going on, I’m sorry about that!
Sitting is killing us. Or wait, maybe it’s standing. Yes, standing can be unhealthy, too. That’s according to the designers of the “chairless chair,” a half-stand, half-sit piece of furniture that will make life less terrible for workers who carry out long shifts on their feet. By taking weight off the joints and lower back, Swiss industrial design house Noonee contends that the chairless chair will decrease fatigue and increase productivity.
The Gentleman’s Wager // Mr Porter
This one’s a little different! I was the ‘portrait expert’ for a Mr Porter x Johnnie Walker partnership film, the third and final in the series. The gentleman’s wager was between Monica Chong - creative director of Cutler and Gross and Perou - a big eared photographer (haha, sorry mate…). Both had to draw one another’s portrait and it was a bloody good job I was on hand to help! You can watch it -here- …enjoy!

Small things that are actually surprisingly big: an entire room in a single box
Convenience is an understatement when it comes to the room-in-a-box. A German design and furniture company came up with this brilliant concept, including a whole room’s worth of furniture in a box that only measures 90 x 120 centimetres. No tools are needed in the process of turning this box into a room, and assembly takes less than 10 minutes!
But what does it include? The unit contains all the essentials: a wardrobe, large desk/table with a separate desk cabinet with locking drawers, a revolving height-adjustable desk chair, two stools, a single bed and mattress, and a tall set of shelves. The stools and the drawers even double as additional storage containers. Talk about brilliant design. This is definitely the way of the future!
