'Bricks + Mortar' Sofa and Chair | Richard Woods and Sebastian Wrong
Collaboration betweeen British artist Richard Woods and designer Sebastian Wrong have produced the design of this series of 'Bricks + Mortar' Sofa and Chair design. The upholstery bares a classic Woods screen print that turns a recycled, domestic motifinto an applied ‘icon'.
The irony of the Bricks & Mortar design lies in the extreme comfort of the chair in comparison to the perceived ‘hardness' of the print. The elegant, fundamental shape of the single seat chair, two-seater sofa and footstool provide the ideal vehicle for Woods' bold design.
'The concept behind the bricks & mortar collaboration was a natural progression into
upholstered surfaces using woods' brick print. the scale and layout of the bricks dictated the scale of the seat and sofa so the mortar lines correspond with the geometry of the object,' says sebastian wrong
