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
