We first met Jon Goulder in Habitus issue 07 when the Perth-based furniture designer took Elisha Buttler around to his favourite places in Australia mining capital.
At the time, Jon was preparing for his solo exhibition 11.12 New Furniture by Jon Goulder at FORM Gallery, which launched this lovable easy chair, Amore Mio Low Chair.
The original limited edition piece was hand-carved from American Black Walnut with a press-laminated seat and back, upholstered in a vibrant teal fabric from Kvadrat Maharam.
Jon’s refined design sensibility and master craftsmanship is one of a kind and it’s not hard to believe that Amore Mio has been collected by the likes of Wesfarmers Private Art Collection, Art Gallery of Western Australia and recently the National Gallery of Australia. It’s also been a sell-out success.
But don’t despair, Amore Mio Low Chair is being tooled up for a new production run made using Rock Maple and studio furniture production techniques, manufactured by Perth’s creative and design enterprise Midland Atelier, and will be on the market in mid-2011.
