1. PHOTO OF MY SIB­LINGS I re­cently found this pic­ture of my brother and sis­ter, Mark and Christina, taken at a church in the vil­lage we’re from in Hert­ford­shire. It makes me laugh be­cause of what they’re wear­ing and how long ago it was. 2. HEIDI STOOL

I de­signed this based on a tra­di­tional Swiss milk­ing stool. In the 1970s there used to be a chil­dren’s pro­gram called Heidi, about a young girl who lived a ru­ral, alpine life. The stool is a bit tongue-in-cheek about that. 3. THE SCOT­TISH HIGH­LANDS

I like the wild empti­ness there. Last New Year’s Eve we went to a spot near In­ver­ness called the Caw­dor Es­tate. 4. UM­BERTO BOCCIONI is one of my all-time hero artists. His work is an amaz­ing tran­si­tion between fig­u­ra­tive work and ab­strac­tion — he had a bril­liant abil­ity to for­malise en­ergy and dy­namic move­ments.

5. MORITO tapas bar in Ex­mouth Mar­ket, London. The food is Span­ish, Por­tuguese and Mo­roc­can, but with a mod­ern twist — it’s ex­tremely de­li­cious. 6. CARO­LINE ACHAINTRE is a Lon­don­based Ger­man artist. Her work is quite punk —it bridges fash­ion, mu­sic, street cul­ture and ma­te­ri­als. 7. PAZUZU DEVIL Ap­par­ently this lit­tle fig­ure is Syr­ian. It’s an im­mac­u­late ob­ject, burst­ing with en­ergy and life. This char­ac­ter ac­tu­ally fea­tures in the 1973 film The Ex­or­cist. 8. MAX is a res­cue dog who came to live with us a year ago. He’s a Po­denco, a ru­ral hunt­ing breed from An­dalucía, in South­ern Spain. He’s a real char­ac­ter. 9. MOUL­TON BI­CY­CLE, cre­ated by Dr Alex Moul­ton. He’s fa­mous for de­sign­ing bikes with small wheels and beau­ti­fully en­gi­neered frames. The sus­pen­sion sys­tem makes it very com­fort­able, so it’s the per­fect city bike.

10. CAST CON­CRETE HOUSE near the Écal art and de­sign school in Lausanne, Switzer­land, where I teach. I think it’s a very clever piece of ar­chi­tec­ture. VL Visit es­tab­lishedand­sons.com; livingedge.com.au
