British designer Benjamin Shine informed me via e-mail he has developed the Pyramid Chair series in response to the problems of discomfort felt when sitting on hard acrylic chairs and the resulting surface scratches that often occur on the seats over time.
Focusing on the humble cushion as the key visual form – a hollow transparent acrylic plynth exhibits the emerging cushion – which, in turn provides the overriding color and pattern of the chair at large. Grouped together, these Pyramid cushions ensure they remain center of attention as they appear to hover in the air.
Adaptable to any interior design scheme through a range of cushion covers and tailored designs, Pyramid offers a simple and versatile range of seating – whilst also being comfortable to sit on.
Yes! Another designer who understands the working of a Blog.
British designer Benjamin Shine informed me via e-mail he has developed the ChairMAN chair.
Constructed from 25mm thick acrylic, ChairMAN aims to playfully demonstrate the relationship between a chair and a man, whereby the chair’s role as an object in which to sit, becomes visually interpreted through the literal and surreal form of a figure sitting, slumped back and relaxed.
ChairMAN was launched during London Design Week at the British fashion house, Aquascutum on Regent Street, where it is currently being exhibited. Available as a limited-edition series in a range of colors, Benjamin is now looking to reproduce the chair for mass market with a suitable distributor following current interest and demand.
Thanks and success Benjamin! May your chair designs shine:-)
P.S. How come you have your studio Down Under?
