Kew Residence by John Wardle Architects is also found in this issue. As the home John Wardle has occupied since 1990 and renovated three times, the project is a profound insight into the personal and professional history of one of Melbourne’s most lauded architects.

The humble towel: a constant presence on long summer days and a valued item in a society so undeniably linked by a shared love of the water. Recognising the importance of this simple household item, Købn is an Australian textiles brand seeking to provide the perfect summer companion through its recently released cotton linen collection.

Rejecting the common ideals of modern living, Købn’s 20/21 range of towels, hand towels and bathmats draws inspiration from Turkish bath houses and the traditional ritual of bathing, consciously seeking a slower style of living through a focus on self-care. The soft colour palette of the collection conjures nostalgic travel memories of the sun-bleached, lime washed walls that adorn the eastern Mediterranean coastline.

Købn’s 20/21 range of towels, hand towels and bathmats draws inspiration from Turkish bath houses and the traditional ritual of bathing.

The new collection consists of chalky natural tones including shell, flax, charcoal, jade with terracotta, rich earth and sky blue. Each of these colours serves to create a serene, harmonious collection of cotton linen towels that perfectly facilitates the laidback lifestyle for which they were designed. Created as a multi-functional piece, each Købn towel is designed for indoor and outdoor living, providing stylish moments of calm at the beach, by the pool, and in the home.

Australian designed and Turkish made, the latest collection of Købn towels signals the introduction of a new weave of premium cotton and linen that combines the aesthetic beauty of a traditional Turkish linen towel with the functional durability of a cotton product. Sustainable, breathable and fast-drying, Købn towels are a true celebration of the natural beauty of traditional textile design.

Recognising that environmental responsibility is as important as aesthetic beauty, sustainability, and transparency has always been at the core of the Købn ethos. The 20/21 range is certified Made in Green, ensuring each product is made from traceable materials in socially responsible workplaces and environmentally friendly facilities. Købn is also a proud partner of I=Change, meaning $1 from every online order is donated to charity.

Redefining the humble towel, Købn has designed an environmentally friendly collection of towels, hand towels and bathmats that combines style with function to provide the perfect companion for summer days and beyond.
