When Angela Kasimis purchased a derelict corner block in Sydney’s inner city suburb of Glebe, she was taking a leap into the unknown. With no hospitality or design experience, she had visions of a boutique wine bar that traded grunge for something decidedly more continental. Enter Pattern Studio, who took Kasimis’ ideas and transformed them into reality, with No. 92 emerging as a refined destination with an approach to design and hospitality that is rich, evocative and immersive. In this session, Kasimis (No. 92) and Lily Goodwin (Pattern Studio) come together to reflect on their collaboration and the magic that comes from a strong working relationship between client and designer.

Speakers

Angela Kasimis

After a long career with the Department of Education, Angela decided to pursue her dream of restoring an 1874 property in Glebe and opening it as a bar. What drove her was her love of design and desire to create a unique hospitality venue that honoured the heritage of the building and communicated a subtle femininity. After 18 long months of planning and approvals Angela engaged Josh and Lily from Pattern Studio to help create No 92. Now she enjoys the anticipation that goes with opening the doors and meeting the guests at No 92 each day.

Lily Goodwin

Lily’s understanding of design theory, history, and her conceptual thinking skills set her apart from other professionals in the field.

With an academic background, Lily has developed a sound ability to resolve design problems using innovative creative thinking, seeing design as a mechanism both to resolve spatial challenges and affect human behaviour with a desired outcome in mind. Coupling a refined design sensibility with an awareness of market and consumer trends, Lily conceives designs which enable brands to create a point of difference and stand out in a competitive landscape.

Understanding the power of presentation, Lily has a keen ability to improve the perceived value of a product or brand using out of the box thinking that is consistently high-quality, fresh and relevant.

Possessing a sound understanding of the unique requirements of fashion houses and retail design Lily has designed for international highend fashion retailers including Chloé, Paul Smith, Paul Andrew, and Birkenstock.

Angie Pai

Angie Pai is a Taiwanese artist based in Australia. Her practice grapples with being a Taoist in contemporary contexts; exploring Confucian doctrines adapted within Western frameworks. Pai’s relation to her mother often plays a pivotal role, with the temporal dimensions of these works yearning for dynamic modes of reconciliation between self and others.
