SPOTTED: Inkster Maken.

Many clients ask me what's my own interior style? Is there a particular 'look' I favour like Industrial or French Provincial etc... I can't say I necessary follow any style when it comes to my own home, but I'm certainly one who loves a mix of textures and layers. I choose pieces based on their simplicity and use of natural materials. This generally sets the theme for me.

So naturally, I fell in love with Inkster Maken, a Melbourne lighting studio founded by Hugh Alschwager. German born, but grew up on a farm in South Australia, Hugh's uncomplicated, versatile lighting range predominately uses timber and locally sourced limestone from South Australia to create his designs. Now doesn't that combination sound surreal?!

Inkster Maken philosophy focuses on high quality craftsmanship and finishes. The fusion of selected materials adds warmth and character to any room. It's tactile nature is what appeals to me the most. The Eclipse Wall Light is a favourite of mine, designed and modelled on the concept of the solar eclipse.
