WELCOME TO THE FIRST ISSUE OF INSIDE 2016. We kick off the new year meeting Rowan Lodge, Head of Retail Design and Design at Aesop. A passionate and energetic commercial and design orientated retailer, who over a 25 year career has been implementing architectural and retail design solutions across the globe. Rowan is in charge of creating the fabulous stores that provide the physical interface between leading Australian skincare brand, Aesop, and its discerning global clientéle. With his innate instinct for detail and design, we were fortunate indeed to number Rowan among our esteemed judges for last year’s World Interiors News Awards. Judging the Emerging Interior Practice of the Year category; ‘The calibre of work from these emerging design practices was extremely high and yet diverse. What struck me was the breadth of work from all continents of the world, and all with a unique story to tell with very little trend crossover between the submissions.’ This issue of INSIDE is dedicated to retail and workspace projects, including the stunning PODOLYAN Store by Ukrainian design brand FILD and Woods Bagot’s new studio in Brisbane.

RETAIL PROJECT: THE PODOLYAN STORE FILD The PODOLYAN store project is the latest work of Ukrainian design brand FILD.

In other words, the idea was to make the interior of the store a part of the window... READ MORE HERE
