Axolotl was recently commissioned by designer Ben Wahrlich to create a piece for the 'Take a seat for Legacy' charity initiative, run by Temple and Webster and Legacy. Artists, designers and celebrities recreate a bentwood chair in their own unique way.
'Immortal' is a tribute towards the iconic bentwood chair. Coated in a textural golden hue of bronze and hand polished, it assumes a new identity as a sculptural art piece - like heroes of the past, who have been immortalised in bronze sculptures throughout history. - says Ben Wahrlich.
The reinvented chairs will all be auctioned at the Temple and Webster Auction later this month with all proceeds going to Legacy.
On the Bronze trend, the stunning garage door below is the result of a intimate collaboration between Axolotl’s in house design team and client, whereby a unique tree-line vista is recreated in a textural brushed bronze. The 3-Dimensional design is created by hand, replicating the trunks of trees, and is accentuated by the Florentine ageing that offers natural variation in colour, complementing the earthen aesthetic.
Axolotl was recently awarded Best Design Manufacturing Company at the 2014 Sydney Design Awards. Anomaly also took out Best Product, in the Product Design – Homewares category for the Kintsugi vessels. We would like to extend our gratitude to all the architects, designers and artists, who have made it possible for us to achieve this distinguishing goal.
