The fiberglass chair is constructed using three planes and features a graphic pattern that references military dazzle ships.

“The starting point for the chair was a computer render (2012), I was particularly interested in how three planes could meet in an interesting way. Originally I wanted to make the chair in metal, but found that the material would not stretch to make the smooth contours, so I made a model in more of a facetted way and then worked from that into a wireframe version (2012) and a metal version (2013). However, I was always interested in making the chair smoothly and worked with a company to make a CNC prototype in hard foam. The foam was coated in epoxy and a mould made from it, and from that the final shape in fibreglass (2015)”, said Julian Mayor.

“I actually made the original product in white, with a black interior, but the interesting join lines where the planes meet was lost, so I decided to paint stripes into the mould to emphasise the contours of the chair and reintroduce a graphical element that is present in my other work. I’m particularly happy with how the stripes give a hand made feel to a chair that is very shiny and perfect. the pattern also produced a kind of ‘dazzle camouflage’ effect that is not far from the first render that I had imagined”, he added.

Tom says: ‘The high streets are fighting a losing battle against the shift to online shopping, while eyewatering rents for prime locations squeeze traditional stores even further. It is time to radically rethink how these spaces can become relevant again in a digitally-defined future. The Multiplex is a prototype shop for the future, a multiple stage for new ideas.”
