Froyo Chair, 2018

The Froyo Chair began as a series of interlocking circles in a doodle/sketch while eating frozen yoghurt. These shapes were recreated in CAD and extruded into an Easy Chair. This design is inspired by mid-century Danish furniture combined with Kathleen’s personal design aesthetic. It’s minimalist aesthetic translates throughout decades and reflects a new generation in Australian design.

This piece is made from plywood and can be produced inexpensively from a flat form. The market is focused on a younger generation with who don't invest in mass produced or replica furniture.
