About the Makers: 

Combining traditional woodworking and metal smithing techniques with contemporary applications Dymond and Young have created a pair of prototype copper framed stools with woven seats. A shared focus on materiality has combined to elevate the classic functional form, reminiscent of mid century school chairs, into elegant contemporary furniture by use of luxe brushed copper and aged green patina, created with locally sourced sea water from Willunga beach, south of Adelaide. The contrast in weaving materials show the intersection, and departure of the individual maker's practices; seagrass reflecting Young’s classic, natural aesthetic while reused hospital oxygen tubing speak to Dymond’s preoccupation with single use waste plastics.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The stools are speculative prototypes for exhibition only and not intended for functional use. Weight bearing capacity is yet to be established. If sold, pieces will be made to order, and undergo more rigorous structural testing, with a lead time of up to 4 months.
