Stossel & Associates apartment project c1960. The firm founded by Hungarian Hugo Stossel completed numerous apartments from the 1950s into the 1960s. By 1970 Stossel had returned to Vienna leaving others including Hungarian George Buda carrying on the firm. Anyone know where this might be? #othermoderns #themoderns #australianarchitecture #australiandesign

🇺🇸👌Well this is rather nice. 'The Moderns' is jam packed full of wonderful, mid-century, American, graphic design. Find this future classic in our 'Graphic Design' books section. #counterprintbooks #themoderns #essentialreading #usausausa

Steven Kalmar arrived in Sydney in 1937 with wife Carlotta, one of many Hungarians making a new home in the city. Although a graduate of architecture Kalmar turned to furniture design and by 1949 had his own store in the fashionable Rowe Street. Under the slogan ‘Do you need modern furniture?’ Kalmar Interiors sold a range of Kalmar’s own designs. See these Kalmar pieces in The Moderns, Museum of Sydney @sydlivmus closing Sunday! This amazing lamp is from the private collection of @twentiethcenturykenneale see it while you can #themoderns #othermoderns

Loved this exhibition!#midcenturyperfection #themoderns
The Moderns: European Designers in Sydney at Museum of Sydney, explores a forgotten aspect of Australian modernism, highlighting the direct connections between Sydney and the European design centres of Vienna, Berlin and Budapest.

Great afternoon at @sydlivmus #museumofsydney finally getting to see #themoderns. Great to walk around with @othermoderns and hear about her research into these interesting lives. What a treat! Such an incredible labour of love

Wowowow #MarionBest was my kinda woman: I’m going to recreate her glossy walls one day (not to mention the Marimekko habit in this show). I’m bummed I only made it on the last day: but you can still get down to see #TheModerns (featuring this Sydney scarf design by Susan Kozma-Orlay) #stufftoseeinSydney #golookatthings #thingstolookat #interiors #textiledesign

Just caught ‪#TheModerns: European Designers in Sydney curated by @othermoderns @sydlivmus #museumofsydney. I grew up in Sydney among the designs of these European émigres and had no idea of where they came from. Bit of a revelation in all sorts of ways. It’s only on for another couple of weeks, a must see. #tookmeback

Here for #themoderns at @sydlivmus museum of Sydney 😄😄

Check your smile!!

Happy Friday. Exterior of William Bland building Macquarie Street by Oser & Fombertaux, 1963. You might have been to the doctor there or possibly the Land & Environment Court. Hopefully not for the destruction of our twentieth century heritage! 📷 Max Dupain

If you’re in Sydney, the @sydlivmus at the #MuseumofSydney has a wonderful, intimate exhibition currently on view #TheModerns, which celebrates the many European designers, craftsmen and craftswomen who immigrated to Australia before, during and after World War II.

Very grateful to @hoseheadrecords for reissuing this rare one. A must-own for fans and collectors of powerpop. This is also one of those albums where you can tell immediately by looking at the cover that it’s gonna be a solid listen. My #VinylWednesdays pick of the week, The Moderns, S/T EP originally from #1979 out by the band themselves in their native home of Sweden. Hoping you guys reissue the rest of their catalogue. Thanks for looking! #TheModerns #PowerPop #Mod #TheYearOfToday #GotToHavePop #WhenTheTimeComes #SayYes #Vinyl #Sweden
