Chris Connell has been awarded the IDEA 2014 Gold Medal. In a Q&A with Inside Magazine, Connell discusses his life and career thus far and how he found his voice in design.

Discussing his inspiration and influences in Australian design, Connell discusses how he maintains freshness and integrity in his creations. Highlighting the recent partnership with Schiavello, Connell says “MAP is now under the management of Schiavello and, after 25 years, my partner (Raoul Hogg) and I no longer could keep the doors open and so with great regret it moved on.

Over the years we have designed many products, one-offs and other constant classics. We aimed to do more with less, yet designing less was more! With many skills disappearing, the ever dumping of copies and cheap crap imports has helped to destroy manufacturing in Australia, but has educated the masses that cheap is the norm when buying furniture.

Fortunately, I am now involved in the new MAP and currently designing a range that will be launched soon in their new showroom… watch this MAP!”
