Tasmanian Highlands Silver Wattle
450W 450D 800H (450H seat)
This design gains inspiration from Donald Judd’s exploration of ‘objects as they exist in space’. The curves employed on the undersides add a further dimension by lightening the visual and physical weight. This creates a surprisingly thin appearance and yet provides structure where it’s most needed.
The chair consists of a total of three joints. This simplicity aids the aesthetics, structure and function alongside production efficiency.
The name pays homage to Liam's great grandparent and generations of Hamra Furniture makers. Hamra Furniture was established by George and Joseph Hamra in Adelaide, South Australia in 1927 and closed in 2015.
