Welcome to the first ever issue
of FAD Quarterly, which was
formerly known as Interior Fitout
magazine. Why the name change?
We needed to broaden our focus
and go beyond shopfitting. So now
FAD Quarterly covers everything
you need to know about retail
fitouts, architecture and design,
hence the name FAD.
We have also gone digital,
making FAD Quarterly only
available as a digital magazine.
Why digital? Simple really, most of
us are now mobile, owning at least
a smartphone and/or iPad. With
FAD Quarterly being digital you
can read it anytime, anywhere on a
mobile or tablet. Sharing tools are
built right into the viewer so that
readers can share content through
Facebook, Twitter, email and over
300 other social sharing networks.
So what can you read in the new
magazine? Each issue will include
a broad range of topics covering
fitout, architecture and design and
our inaugural launch edition is
packed with great features.
In Design Guru we talk to Kris
Torma about the partnership
between his company Axolotl and
Evostyle, to form Anomaly. Anomaly
stands for 'deviation from the
norm' and represents only the most
innovative Australian design through
a showcase of unique furniture,
homewares and lighting. Read more
about this venture on page 20.
Colour is an important part of
design and fitouts. On page 22 we
focus on four colour palettes that
will dominate next year's trends.
In our architectural focus we
feature Australian architect,
Edward Billson, who has created
architecture and interiors for
China's first winery dedicated
to the production of premium
sparkling wine in the Ningxia Hui
region. Go to page 28 to read how
he overcame many challenges to
finish this architectural masterpiece.
We also spoke to architect
Leon Lopata, who established his
own practice earlier this year and
recently completed his first retail
design project. Read more about
this project and how Lopata plans
to grow his retail design practice
on page 30.
Study tour features the best of
the best in fitout and design from
abroad and starting on page 36
you can read about how UK retail
design specialist KVB Design has
created a new showroom concept
for German home furniture group
Rolf Benz's freistil range. We also
feature architectural design firm
MoreySmith that has completed
the newly expanded headquarters
for online fashion retailer ASOS at
Greater London House. On page
42 you can read all about hotel
specialist Richmond International's
completed The Veranda
Restaurant, an all-day dining room
set within the world-renowned
Grand Hôtel in Stockholm.
Cash is king is a phrase used
over and over again and in our
finance article on page 48 we
discuss nine ways to improve cash
flow in small businesses.
Plus we have all the latest
industry news and products.
I hope you enjoy reading the first
issue of FAD Quarterly and I would
love to hear what you think, so drop
me a line when you have the chance.
