Balwyn House is the latest residential project completed by Melbourne-based Fiona Lynch Design Studio. The project is a new build where the team at Fiona Lynch were commissioned to design the interiors. Everything about this home exudes a refined and artistic moodiness, from the stunning jewel-toned palette to the layered use of the highly edited material palette.
Rich velvets, floor to ceiling window dressings and over-dyed rugs in emerald, navy and ruby tones create the luxe mood, and are enhanced by a cool palette of hard materials, crisp white paint, silver fixtures and mirrored furniture. Lynch adds warm elements to balance the coolness, evident in oak timber accessories, and raw tan leather furniture.
Melbourne-based interior designer Fiona Lynch is opening a permanent gallery Work Shop in Collingwood, coinciding with NGV Melbourne Design Week. A curated showcase of experimental design, fine art, and objects, Work Shop will display work from Australian and international artists and designers, including commissioned and original pieces. By identifying commonalities across mediums and materials, Work Shop aims to unpack the relationship between art and design.
通过Lynch早期的美术生涯，该画廊将成为她同名室内设计公司的试验场;在某种程度上，实验室为观众提供了对创作过程的深刻见解。 “在学习室内设计之前，我曾在墨尔本的墨尔本皇家理工大学学习美术，”Lynch说。 “这条独特的道路一直反映在我的工作和我们设计的方式上。 Work Shop将为我的工作室和我提供进一步探索的机会......以挑战和激励的方式审视艺术与设计之间的对话?！?br />
Informed by Lynch’s early career in fine art, the gallery will serve as a testing ground for her eponymous interior design practice; somewhat of an experimental lab that gives audiences an unveiled insight into the creative process. “Prior to studying interior design I studied Fine Art at RMIT in Melbourne,” says Lynch. “This unique path has always been reflected in my work and the way we approach design. Work Shop will afford my studio and I the opportunity to explore this further… examining the dialogue between art and design in a way that challenges and inspires.”
