About

Long lounge with strong edges, but soft in all the right places. Basically a great romantic, but the contrasting upholstery adds melodrama to the act.

About The Maker

Blainey North Collection

Blainey North Collection

View Profile
It is fascinating to follow an idea from its genesis to its full creative expression be it in art, film or design. For some it is entirely intuitive, and they struggle to express it in words, for others the process of articulating a concept allows for refinement, crystallising it into form, material and function. Blainey North falls into the latter category. Stimulated by an image of Hong Kong at night with the layered, pattern-making of a thousand densely packed sky-rise buildings cut through the middle with the fluid amber of car headlights, it is both gestural and formulaic. “The notion of mapping, of tracing human movement through a city was the starting point for me. Cities are hard, with a multiplicity of levels and differing scales, their repetitive nature generating an edgy beauty. Human bodies on the other hand are soft and the movements are random creating these idiosyncratic trails within the urban landscape’, says North. It is the tension between these two aspects of modern life that form the basis for the new furniture range. Researching images of bondage with its notions of restraint on soft skin and the marking of bodies through the imprint of a mechanical tattoo design informed the process. ‘There is an interesting psychology I wanted to unpick and translate some of those concepts into the furniture designs’, says North.
