Friend of Collate, and someone who's work I admire greatly these days, New Zealand born designer Jamie McLellan has been in touch with some images of a recently completed project. The Lumber Dining Table is two slabs of book-matched sapele, held in place by a central spine which is exposed through the table top. The design uses the same language as other more recent Lumber pieces designed by Jamie, and has been lovingly handmade with recent collaborator and cabinet maker David White. What was conceived initially as a meeting table for their Auckland based boat house studio has now become a build-to-order offering in two sizes.
Be sure to head over to Jamie's site to check out a few other recent updates.
A while back, I previewed the newest incarnation to be born out of Australian based Made Publishers and a few days ago they officially launched the first Edition of Nourished Journal. Get your hands on a copy in both print and digital formats. Thomas Williams of Made Publishers explains a bit more about the first edition;
'We are extremely excited to announce the release of our new bi-annual lifestyle publication Nourished Journal. The aim of Nourished is not only to create an inspiring publication, but also be a platform for readers and contributors alike to share, learn and connect. The journal features interviews with inspiring individuals, uplifting and informative editorial, recipes, travel stories and practical information on health and wellbeing. We believe in taking a holistic view on life, which you will see reflected throughout the journal.
Some of the features in Edition One include actor Shiva Rose, edible flowers recipes, Lauri Kranz from Edible Gardens LA, how to make fermented foods, a yoga breakdown, Strala Yoga founder Tara Stiles, director Kinga Burza, travel from Byron Bay to Utah, our guide to Los Angeles, and five minutes with designer Jenni Kayne'.
