Mainichi welcomes you to the new site
Welcome to the new website for my relaunched design practice, Mainichi. Incorporating online shop, blog and project portfolio, it's a one stop destination for Melbourne based design. Here's a little explanation about where I've come from and where I'm going.........
Mainichi is a design studio located on the edge of the picturesque Yarra Valley near Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Mainichi started out in 2004 making a range of handcrafted, unique jewellery pieces from recycled and upcycled materials. This year (2013) Mainichi re-launches through this website as the multi-disciplinary design practice of designer Dearne Mills (formerly Dearne Herrenberg Interiors), bringing together over fifteen years of experience designing interior environments with a passion for uncomplicated, sensitive and playful design and craft.
Dearne says of her interiors work in the architectural publication "Open Doors":
"I appreciate the simplicity in all things, and I bring this attitude to my work. I am excited by interiors that are engaging, human-oriented and not too serious.....It's my belief that design should provide comfort, add value and aesthetic quality, and still be practical. Too often, contemporary interiors are slick and cold, not allowing for the human factor."
I look forward to sharing my work, and all things design, craft, Yarra Valley and Melbourne with you, through this new site.
