ADAM & ARTHUR – LOCAL DESIGN FOR LANE CRAWFORD…….
Award-winning Australian designer Adam Goodrum was among the first to recognise Seigneur’s unique skill not long after the Parisian arrived in Sydney in early 2015. Goodrum, who has worked with an impressive list of global brands including Cappellini. Alessi and Veuve Cliquot inviting Seigneur to collaborate on a reinterpretation of Arne Jacoben’s iconic Series-7 chair for Cult furniture. The Bloom cabinet was the first of their purpose-designed piece launching with LOCAL DESIGN in Milan last year and marks the beginning of an ongoing collaboration, having been acquired by the National Gallery of Victoria. The combination of Adam and Arthur is a unique fusion of award winning industrial design meeting artisanal craft, prestige and a new wave of Luxury design.
‘The Ode Collection’ of mirrors is composed of colourful geometric straw marquetry, wood, brass and glass. Mirror is brass tinted glass. Hand laid rye straw on hoop pine with brass backing. Hung on a brass back to create space between the object and the wall. An ode is a lyrical, elaborately structured poem describing nature intellectually as well as emotionally. The Ode Mirror Collection is a series of unique objects inspired by the abstract world and modernism. Each mirror is a unique signed edition exclusively for Lane Crawford. The hand Laid marquetry of custom dyed natural rye straw, makes every colour combination and texture individual. Adam & Arthur hand make all their Limited Edition objects in their studio in Sydney.
As well as creating ‘The Ode Collection’ with Arthur, Adam has also created a series of exclusive side tables: Chatter Box has been inspired by the process Utzon used to create his concept for the Sydney Opera House – cutting a sphere into segments and then reconfiguring to create a new form. The same process has been applied but with a rectangular prism as the initial shape exclusively for Lane Crawford. A ceramic version of Chatter Box has been acquired for the permeant collection of the Art Gallery of Western Australia.
