Convolvulus is a chair that has been designed to re propose the kind of magic that Art Nouveau and '60s design had, with a contemporary statement. Its construction and manufacture has been achieved through small production run industrial processes with a vacuum formed plastic seat shell, cast aluminium components and a simple tubular steel base.

Art Nouveau qualities in the design were achieved by basing the initial drawings on Convolvulus blossoms, and the Arnio/Saarinen '60s touch with the orange upholstered cushion was added. I decided that to complete the presentation of the project as a contemporary/retro design, I needed to photograph it in a suitable set, but with a model of a 'contemporary' beauty.

Convolvulus is registered design No. 3012079
