Seletti X Studio Job Industry Garden Cast Aluminium Armchair
In the Industry Collection, Seletti goes deep into classic Victorian outdoor furniture and emerges with characteristically playful, cheeky pieces.
Romantic and timeless shapes of a classic Victorian garden set. The decorations show the maximum representation of pop style designed by Studio Job. The more classical garden furniture is now crazy and colourful, real bucolic design works of art. This cast aluminium chair at first glance does look like one of those old-fashioned pieces, and then you get up close and see the peace signs and dragonflies and lightning bolts. Maximalism, we could probably term this.
Material: Cast Aluminium Dimensions: 52 x 55 x 94cm Seat Height: 45cm
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Studio Job was founded in 1998 by Job Smeets in the renaissance spirit, combining traditional and modern techniques to produce once-in-a-lifetime objects. At once highly specific and yet entirely universal, personally expressive and yet experimental, Studio Job has crafted a body of work that draws upon classical, popular and contemporary design and highly visual and sculptural art.
The studio works across many areas including art, design, fashion, architecture and interiors having worked with a vast range of high profile clients. In 2017 Studio Job teamed up with Italian manufacturer Seletti to form the joint brand BLOW producing products in their pop spirit with a radical twist. Studio Job are consistently ranked as one of the world’s most influential players within design and art. Their highly collectable work creates a bridge between object and product by merging monumental design and functional art.
Founded in 1964, Italian lifestyle brand Seletti focuses on presenting design projects that showcase the creative characteristics synonymous with Italian excellence. Linking design to pop art in the most charming and irreverent manner, Seletti’s collections blend art with daily life icons.
Since its inception, Seletti has always followed its own rules. From iconic lighting and art de la table to statement objects and furniture, Seletti’s collection of irreverent pieces blends art with the everyday and are designed to make life more fun and exciting.
Seletti is now led by Stefano and Miria Seletti and has expanded into a range of collections embodying enthusiasm, passion, creativity, and experimentation.
Stefano has always believed in reinvention and works with a range of young Italian and international designers to evolve their designs. By also working with people outside of the design world, Stefano can look at the process from new angles, his unconventional and non-academic background lead him to break down barriers and journey towards a ‘new beauty. For Seletti, this is (r)evolution.
