Southern Hemisphere Patina Chair By Ron Arad
Updated: Jan 30, 2020
Industrial designer, Ron Arad, takes most of his inspiration from metal. Arad molds extremely complicated volumes that create a very heavy and solid presence. Similar to most of his other designs, Southern Hemisphere chair has a masculine look and is contoured by bold and curved lines.
He brings out the details through the shapes, ranging from the way he makes the arms emerge from the chair body to bringing the balance to both the front and the back of the chair. Great focus is given to the proportion of various parts and how they fit into the whole design. There are no ornamental bolts and nuts or spindly legs. His creation is a fluid and a strong piece which is timeless. The Southern Hemisphere chair is made of patinated aluminum and the dimensions are 51” x 52” x 52”.
