Inspiration comes from the landscape of the Southern Alps. Its an environment where the landscape is always changing but also exhibits irregular forms with cracks and fissures sculpting the environment.
The Umber Chair has been awarded the Gold Pin at the 2012 Best Design Awards. Following are comments from the Judges who selected the piece.“The Umber chair is an iconic, beautifully proportioned and elegantly constructed piece of timber furniture that has the potential to go on to become a New Zealand design ‘classic’. The judges ‘loved’ the comfort, feel and solidity of the chair. They noted its maturity and timelessness, and thought that it could become a piece of furniture that would be passed down through the generations. They noted that Tréology is creating a range of furniture products that balance a New Zealand furniture tradition with innovation and style ”
The Umber Chair is special as it highlights what a sinuous relationship can do when design is embraced. Sketch to off tool prototypes seen here was four months and is a credit to craftsmanship and passion existing at Treology.
