Inspired by Australian-American artist Clement Meadmore's work, the 101 Chair was Helen Kontouris' initial foray into furniture design.Sculptural and unique, the chair encourages interaction, inviting you to move around it and explore its angles. It features a twisting form, defined negative space and a side profile that resembles a swan.
Melbourne-based designer Helen Kontouris is an established pioneer in object and furniture design. Her work is often described as sculptural, while her products invite exploration and intimate engagement.
Helen took the 101 prototype to Salone del Mobile Milano, where Peter Schiavello saw it and immediately asked to develop it. This was no easy feat, however.
