Many thanks to Inside Magazine and Est Living for the wonderful articles on the Robert Bruce – an 89.90ft luxury vessel we have recently had the pleasure of working on.

“The interior of the Robert Bruce is appropriate and classic, modern but not intimidating. The aesthetic is correct and feels as if it belongs, with not a blue stripe in sight. Marczyk’s interior design for this project is all that it should be with comfort and style at the nucleus of the endeavour. With a renewed life ahead, the Robert Bruce can now set sail with all the amenity of home and a grand interior that sets the speed.” Read the full Inside Magazine article here.

“Nexus Designs have tactfully mixed core existing elements such as the traditional piano high-gloss timber joinery, gold detailing and mother of pearl inlays with high tech solid surface bench tops and a timber-look high quality vinyl. New floor, wall and ceiling finishes in a neutral palette help lighten what was previously a dark and moody space, while outside on the Skydeck the white and beige tones continue to the upholstery and furnishings, consolidating the easy, timeless sensibility of the design.” Read the full Est Living article here.

On their imagined river cruise vessel, Monocle’s The Escapist has chosen Nexus Designs as one of the essential ingredients in creating the perfect freshwater getaway.

“Recruiting Australian firm Nexus Designs, whose portfolio includes various maritime projects, we’ll incorporate a seafaring-inspired palette. Classy naval stripes and sea-rope detailing with be used sparingly. Expect sturdy, elegant furniture: Patricia Urquiola’s Husk Chair from B&B Italia, with shelled bottoms reminiscent of a boat hull, will be paired with tough-to-topple stools from Artek.”

We’d like to thank everyone who attended our presentation event on 9th of May. Push Me Pull You, a report on the highlights and insights we gained from the recent 2017 Milan Design Week was a great success. Made possible by our wonderful hosts CULT and sponsor CSR Viridian, guests were treated to delicious antipasti provided by D.O.C, prosecco and wine from Tricolore Imports and of course an entertaining presentation from two of our senior designers.

The Nexus Designs Graphic Design team was asked by Dulux to design a colour card primarily focused on encouraging interest from architects and designers for commercial and high-end residential projects, and to communicate to these specifiers the product attributes.

The Product Development team were also invited to select and rationalise colours for the Duratec®, Duratec® Intensity®, Electro™ and Fluoroset® ranges. The result is an informative and inspiring brochure for specifiers.

Our project, Cider House, was featured in the March 2017 issue of Australian House & Garden magazine.

The palette was devised by Nexus Designs’ senior interior designer Karina Harvey. “The property has an old woodshed built from black oil-stained timbers,” says Sonia. “Karina loved this blackened timber against lush greenness, and she wanted to bring that into the interior.”
