Office Concept, a magazine focusing on premium corporate office interior design, features two modern iconic pieces – the sculptural 101 by Helen Kontouris and the versatile Hedge by Oliver Field.
Featuring the 101 in the Entrée section, the chair’s fluid ‘ribbon-like movement’ and contoured seating is highlighted along with the bold and playful tactility addressed by the designer. Materialised of moulded fiber-glass and wool felt fabric, the 101 is a modern yet classic piece.
Hedge was notably featured in the magazine’s main feature, Fitting Interiors, as one of the products that emphasises the right fit and balance with careful material selection. “My intention for Hedge is to provoke both an emotional and tangible connection between the user and the piece by combining aesthetic personality with function,” describes Fields. The Hedge was notably shortlisted in 2009 in the Cicely & Colin Rigg Contemporary Design Awards.
