The second ever Cult Chairity Project (no, that’s not a typo) sees a bunch of talented Aussie and Kiwi artists reinvent an iconic chair design. Each artist is given complete freedom to reinvent the chair which is exhibited and auctioned off to a charity of the artist’s own choice.
This year the chair in question is Arne Jacobsen’s Series 7, and the 2015 event ties in neatly with the 60th anniversary of the iconic chair.
Building on the success of last year’s event, Cult has added to the list of artists from a cross section of industrial design, architecture and art, as well as floral and jewellery design. Included in the list are local talents such as Dinosaur Designs, Akira Isogawa and David Trubridge.
The project will be shown off nationwide via guided tours, starting in Sydney this week, then making its way down to Melbourne (12-14 November) and finishing off in Brisbane (19-21 November).
The online auction is live and closes 22 November.
