Claude cast from nature achieving a delicacy and sensitivity in her work and Lalanne found inspiration in the animal world. His subjects consist of a menagerie of animals, stylized forms often married with functionality. His works achieve streamlined elegance in their profound simplicity. For exterior design inspiration and great amusement. Google Images Les Lelanne.

JOMO steel launches at Melbourne's State of Design Festival
JOMO steel launched its brand in July 2011 at the Decoration and Design Expo at Melbourne's State of Design Festival.  A select portfolio of garden water sculpture and steel wall-screen systems met with positive responses from architects, project managers and interior designers.  The audience responded well to the 'strong sculptural forms and technical finish', the effects of 'light on steel and water' and the minimalist design quality.


  Contemporary design draws on ancient traditions
JOMO designer - Jo Moulton's keen interest in metalwork dates back to her research at the University of Melbourne on precious Limoges reliquaries and ecclesiastical objects. She traced the origins and traditions of metalwork crafts from the East along the pilgrimage routes of Medieval Europe.  Jo also worked at the National Gallery of Victoria where she had first hand experience of the Medieval collection. Jo taps into the sculptural quality and spirituality of these objects. See medieval collections at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, or at the National Gallery of Victoria

  Atelier designs hold value in Europe
A favorite site of JOMO, Galerie Alainko specializes in unique atelier furniture and home wares design of the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The collection spans not only Scandinavian, Dutch, Italian, Belgian and French designers, but also German, Swiss and Brazilian designers. Rather than collecting the big names Alainko seeks out unique and exclusive designs of that era that were produced on a small scale. They handle some extraordinary and timeless objects and furniture, including JOMO's favorite designer of that era, Mathieu Mategot. (Pictured: Kangarou 1950s Paris)

  Fashioning Metal in 1950's Paris
JOMO designer - Jo Moulton - is attracted to the work of Hungarian born designer, Mathieu Mategot, who worked in France from the 1930's.  He engineered new technologies to manufacture his designs creating a unique perforated metal fabric that could be pleated and manipulated like a fashion garment. Unfortunately, his technology is lost but Jo's designs aim to capture the lightness and elegance of Mategot's creations with the limitations and possibilities of current manufacturing technologies. To see some examples just Google Mathieu Mategot images.
