The Chairity Project 2015 is the second edition of Cult’s esteemed charity event that invites leading Australian and New Zealand creatives to reinvent an iconic chair design. Each creative is given complete freedom to reinvent the chair, which is exhibited and auctioned off to a charity of the creative’s own choice.
This year Cult has partnered with the Republic of Fritz Hansen to reinvent the iconic Series 7 chair and pay homage to renowned Danish designer, Arne Jacobsen. The Chairity Event 2015 ties in with the 60th anniversary celebrations of the iconic Series 7 chair, which has also been released in two limited anniversary editions and a new colour scheme.
Cult has increased the line-up of creatives from a cross section of industrial design, architecture and art as well as floral and jewellery design. These include renowned local talents such as Dinosaur Designs, Akira Isogawa and David Trubridge.
Chairity Project 2015 will be displayed nationally throughout Cult showrooms in Sydney (5-7 November), Melbourne (12-14 November) and Brisbane (19-21 November).
All 20 works will be auctioned off with full proceeds going to the charity of the designer’s choice. The online auction goes live November 5 and closes November 22 at 8.00pm EST.
