..... heaven on earth

don't think i have ever shown you the frames we designed for the installation at earth lodge in sabisabi! angled box frames made out of jacaranda. it was an absolutely amazing experience, the whole lodge is built into the side of a rock face, upon arrival you see nothing but a small path, follow it and you are end up one of the most beautiful places on earth! felt like alice in wonderland! the rooms were to die for, the furniture is made from pieces of driftwood that washed up after floods in the area many years ago, very eco chic! so naturally organic.....

dream of going back there.....
