Amanda Blair was referred to Enoki by Khai Liew. Khai Liew had helped Amanda with furniture pieces for her home. Amanda approached Enoki with a desire to make her home 'liveable'. Enoki helped with the selections of finishes and fittings for Amanda's whole house with an emphasis on originality and above all the inclusion of colours. The kitchen was treated wholistically, and transformed from bare bones to a lovely warm 'heart' of the home. Spacious 'Bright Lady' pink cabinetry, contemporary appliances, and a breathtaking 'Shamrock' green splashback make the kitchen a pleasure to inhabit. Amanda Blair's home was featured in the May Issue of The Adelaide Magazine.
DESIGN BY SUSANNA BILARDO AND VI NGUYEN [ENOKI]
We are in the workshop. Not Enoki’s workshop but in Lex Stobie’s workshop in Melbourne (top) and Gareth Brown’s workshop in Adelaide (above). The Belair Sports Bar – Stage 3 of its refurbishment - is nearly in completion and will see its opening in July 2010. The furniture and timber features are custom designed by Enoki. We worked with Designer Makers to develop, refine, build and search the yards for the most suitable reclaimed timber for the job. Local manufacture and local material is the best part of this project.
So we went to Sydney. Shortlisted at a National Awards night felt like wind beneath our feet. We dont get out much so this Sydney trip was like a fizzy drink. Bills, Sushi Choo, Ivy's Pool Club, The Town Hall, The Establishment, Akira, The Corner Shop, Victor Churchill's Butcher Shop, Fleur Wood, Aesop, Fratelli Fresh, Metalab, the list is like a film you never want to end. But it did and we brought home an award "Best of State" in Commercial Design for The Belair Hotel, also awarded to Folland Panozzo Architects. Thanks and gratitude goes out to our clients Brett and Sarah Matthews and Builder Carmine from Advanced Building Concepts. We met some great people at the awards night. Greetings to our friends Florence & Henry.
The Ivy Chandelier has moved into production and will become a different light fitting than the one originally conceived. Tim Grisbrook of Enoki has cut ivy leaves out of felt. They are ready for assembling onto the frame. The ivy leaves also make a fine sculpture when stacked together.
