Sebastian Wrong & Richard Woods (the United Kingdom)

Brick Chair (2009)

British artist Richard Woods and designer Sebastian Wrong have collaborated on the design of this seating range. The upholstery bears a classic Woods’ screen print that turns recycled, domestic motifs into applied ‘icons’. The irony of the design lies in the extreme comfort of the chair in comparison to the perceived ‘hardness’ of the print. The elegant, fundamental shape of the single seat chair, two-seater sofa and ottoman provide the ideal vehicle for Woods’ bold design. “The inspiration behind the Bricks & Mortar collaboration was a natural progression into upholstered surfaces using Woods’ brick print. The scale and layout of the bricks dictated the scale of the seat and sofa, so the mortar lines correspond with the geometry of the object,“ says Sebastian Wrong.
