Featured on the Designerati website

  • By Jonathan Banks

My photography currently features on the Designerati website, the digital home and website for “Designer Magazine”.

The article is part of a new series featuring designers and architects speaking about future-proof design. The photographs are from a recent assignment for Tetris DB of the new Wise offices in the Tea Building in Shoreditch, London. Great interior design understands the end user’s requirements, respects the interior space, and produces an environment which is reflective of the brand. The offices have been designed as a flexible working environment with collaborative spaces that utilise a multitude of different options of furniture to enhance creativity.

The article looks at how furniture should not be an afterthought and that we should recognise its vital role as a key driver of a holistic sustainability approach that can extend and enhance the lifecycle of workplaces.

Front Cover of Interior Design Magazine

  • By Jonathan Banks

I am featured all over Interior Design Magazine this month, thanks to the good people at Armourcoat. In the March edition of Interior Designer Magazine my photography is on the front cover, the inside cover, there are three photos used in an article on page 19 and then another photo for a feature on page 45.

Interior Designer Magazine is Britain's longest established magazine for professional interior designers. It is the premier source of inspiration for the interior’s community, working with the very best creatives who are influencing and shaping the industry. The magazine presents project features, articles about the people behind the project, product news, and general ideas.

I photographed the Long Barn, East Sussex, showcasing the incredibly beautiful Clime plaster work by Armourcoat. Made from natural minerals with low embodied carbon, Clime plasters contain no cement or volatile organic compounds and are available in a wide range of natural colours.

Clime plasters create healthy interiors, with beautiful finishes in tune with nature and engaging traditional decorative skills.
