Thom Kerr is known for his bold experimentation and vivid use of color. His work acts as a bridge between the realms of fashion and fine art.
In 2005 Thom Kerr graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts specializing in writing and directing in his native Australia. He initially freelanced as a stylist, set designer, and writer for numerous publications - collaborating with an eclectic set of photographers & directors whilst developing his own direction. In 2007 he decided to step behind the camera officially and developed a successful photographic career taking him around the globe. 2016 saw him return to his original roots, translating his stylistic imagery into eye-catching videos for artists including Iggy Azalea, Brooke Candy and Kimbra.
Garnering comparisons to some of the world’s most established directors and photographers, his folio has attracted an international audience, with advertising and magazine commissions worldwide. With experience working across all aspects of imagery he is often asked to consult with brands, personalities, and publications on the creative direction of each assignment.
Thom continues to break away from industry expectations by delivering visuals that are bold and forward thinking in their approach.
Custom decorative pillows pair perfectly with the natural landscape.
An assortment of blue and turquoise Custom pillows covered in Sunbrella fabric allows you to create elegant coordinating designs, adding a deeper level of sophistication with luxurious textures and colors. Coordinate your pillows to upholstered furniture, cushions, drapery, and other design elements in the room.
Sunbrella is founded on the belief that fabrics should be both beautiful and functional. We began in the 1960s with the challenge of creating an awning canvas with a substantially longer lifespan than cotton. Sunbrella has become widely adopted for shade structures, marine canvas and upholstery fabric for both outdoor and indoor applications.
Fanny Rice’s art is inspired and informed by her travels around the globe. Her work, with its fluid and textured movement, is the abstract imprint of the colorful landscapes she has experienced.
Her signature style is immediately recognizable through textures, reliefs created by the layers and glossy nishes that add three-dimension- ality and richness to her work. Acrylic and resin generate a palpable sense of fluidity in her artwork - making her creations both intriguing and mysterious.
Fanny’s approach and her interests are constantly evolving. Currently, she is focusing on themes of purity and calmness and their interplay with the powerful chaos of nature.

Globalism, individualism and minimalism are the main trends of our present and our future, but in the pursuit of fashion and trends we must not forget of our roots”.

EGIZIA + KARIM RASHID
Egizia has collaborated with the high-spirited designer, Egyptian born but Canadian by adoption, Karim Rashid to bring us two new collections that push forward and expand the candles and spaces fragrances world, but with the unique touch of the artist.
“Candles and Home Fragrances”: sinuous shapes and uorescent colors blend together, guiding us through a delicate sensorial and visual itinerary into a world full of fresh and light fragrances.
“Static” collection”: the light and thin silver inlay make all the vases perfectly able to decorate and light up any space, with personality and freshness.
“Egizia has given me the opportunity to touch the world with my contemporary hieroglyphics, my icons, symbols, optical patterns and digitally inspired decoration with their beautiful glass and hand-made precise serigraphy. To bring meaning to decoration is to bring signi cance and relationships between our objects and our lives. I feel some beautiful connection with my Egyptian heritage and with Egizia as a symbolic marriage of our love for the new contemporary decorated landscape.” Karim.
When asked to define his work, Jerusalem born and Paris based, Dan answers:
“Definitions are our limits; I would like to consider myself as an explorer and adventurer.
The amazing thing about design is that everything is possible - dreams can be translated, abstracted and carried out; raw material gets personality, movement and a new life.
The continuous quest toward new shapes, volumes, techniques, hidden places, new inspiration and the inevitable insisting on perfection are who I am, my DNA.
These are the reasons for my deep love to design, the ability to keep on a journey of an endless quest.”
Visions are great plans which redefine the future while being realised. This was the guiding principle of one of the world’s best known and biggest airlines which grew into an institution in civil aviation: Pan Am.
For more than six decades the airline was synonymous with progress, innovation and pioneering spirit. bordbar celebrates this visionary airline with a variety of officially licensed motifs in the new, used, rivet rocker and black edition.
Courage and imagination is what makes visionaries.
Pan Am founder Juan T. Trippe wanted affordable flying for everyone. In 1985 the first jetliner took off from New York to Paris. This marked the beginning of the jet set, introduced by Pan Am. Authentic details and stylistic features are used in the Pan Am edition to revive the spirit of those glorious times in civil aviation. It also reminds us that ideas give birth to the future.
