Sydney Design: WORKSHOPPED 11
Replica Wassily chair, found in the street, re-purposed - Henry Wilson
This week I visited the WORKSHOPPED exhibition and entered furniture heaven. The first chair shown here (above) would have to be my absolute favourite with its tentacle blue legs and tan leather seat. It is a replica Wassily chair that was found and re-purposed with terrific results.
Simple bedside tables made from sustainable Bamboo Plywood and Marmoleum - Scott Clements
The Matador Chair inspired by the chaos of the bullfights in Spain and designed to be flat packed and assembled by the user - Nicholas Kelly
The Ticket Chair inspired by the story Grant Featherston playing with a tram ticket. He folded and twisted the flat piece of paper into the form of a chair - Guy Paramore
C10 chair assembled with soft nylon thread that creates tension and is surprisingly sturdy - Jennifer Edmunds
The Scalloped Seat has been ergonomically designed for comfort in a relaxed seating position - Nita Robson
Each year, WORKSHOPPED presents new Australian designs and it has become an opportunity for young designers to launch their products into the commercial market. Who knows, maybe we will be seeing more from these designers in the future?
If you are in Sydney, the exhibition runs until August 13 at 8 Hill Street, Surry Hills.
