If you have not heard of Nicholas Kelly, it’s time to hear. And here is the latest work from this young talented Australian designer called Matador Chair, created in collaboration with Shane Talbot and to be built with Anthea Bakopanos.
Together they developed a collection of chairs and will be presented at the design events of the VIVID 2011 (Melbourne) & WORKSHOPPED 2011 (Sydney).
As the name suggests, this seating furniture was inspired by the chaos inherent in bullfights in Spain. The history of the chair appears bullfightis Matador through the quiet parts of the leg, which represent both the physical posture of the bull and the attitude and showmanship of the matador. The sharp lines of the reference seat at erratic and chaotic movements of the bull. As the matador with the controls of subtle coercion, parts of the leg seem to control the change of direction from this project in question.
Matador Chair – this minimalist sculptural backrests are made from 20mm ‘coffee’ coloured bamboo plywood. Bamboo was chosen for its excellent strength to weight ratio, their properties environmentally sustainable and aesthetically beautiful.
The pieces of leg and arm are made of two layers of plywood 12 mm marine ply stiffer. The bamboo is finished with a polyurethane coating aprotective mate, while marine plywood is finished in matt white paint.
The Matador Chair is designed to be assembled and filled with outright by the user. You can be sure that sitting on a clean lines, modern aesthetics and ergonomic chair.
