artist richard woods and designer sebastian wrong have collaborated on this series
of sofas and chairs for british company established & sons.
the upholstery bares a classic woods’ screen print that turns recycled, domestic motif into
applied icons. 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 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.
