Friday Fabulous Five

'Pliable Planes' at UNSW Galleries in Sydney pools work by 12 Australian artists who expand the creative possibilities of textiles and fibres. Curated by Karen Hall and Catherine Woolley, the exhibition takes its title from a 1957 essay by Bauhaus artist Anni Albers, who espoused the endless mutability of material. Made from sailcloth and parachute silk, Kate Scardifield's Canis Major is activated by the body and wind, taking flight to form a kind of land art, while works (pictured) made collaboratively by weaving artist Jacqueline Stojanović and abstractionist John Nixon entwine the histories of handmade crafts and avant-garde painting through their compelling fabrication. Until July 17.
Tucked away on the northern base of the Sydney Harbour Bridge is Loulou, a fresh new French bistro, boulangerie and traiteur. Bread is pulled from the oven four times a day to ensure it's got crunch, whether collected first thing in the morning or on the way to a dinner party. At night in the bistro, French classics are served in a lighter, yet quintessentially flavoursome fashion. The John Dory is stuffed and drizzled in a Champagne sauce, the French onion soup encrusted in a puff of pastry, perfect for dipping. From the street, little is revealed of the sultry interiors, with leather banquette seating, brass fittings and a skylight running the length of the space. Apart from the large line that congregates outside each morning, of course.

Designed to showcase the "artistry of nature" Signorino launched its expanded warehouse as an "unrivalled gallery of stone" in a sleek and sophisticated interior. The brand celebrated with a glamorous launch event that offered a sneak peak of its newly made-over premises to design and property professionals. Touted as offering the most extensive selection of natural stone slabs, the brand warmly welcomes visitors to its Altona North premises in Melbourne. Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide shoppers should look out for additional Signorino showrooms planned to debut later in the year.
There's nothing quite like peeking into the homes of top creatives and absorbing some of their skill and flair. From their online series, Quintessence, authors Susanna Salk and Stacey Bewkes have entrée to such abodes as textile designer John Robshaw's Connecticut weekender, infused with the fruits of his travels and passion for art, and the West Hollywood garden home of chef and self-described 'entertainologist' Lulu Powers. An abundance of personal style is on display in At Home with Designers and Tastemakers.
