Her Inspiration: "Upon receiving the Swan chair, I was struck by the combination of simple elegance and modernity it embodied. I wanted to create a design to complement and enhance the existing features whilst conveying my signature style and representing the graphic style of the Holly Fulton label.
Given that the chair was quite a curvilinear design, I wanted to create a motif that was straight as a foil to this and create a central spine of crystal to run up the front and back of the piece, with interlocking colours and shapes emanating from this.
Inspired by a diverse range of influences such as art deco and the work of Eduardo Paolozzi, the key idea for this came from Paolozzi Wittgenstein in New York with its eclectic mix of references and lines of solid block color encircling pop art images and also from NASA images of spacecraft around this time. The color pallette of black filtering through gray to a variety of blues is taken from early Pucci prints as a nod to the chairs 1960s heritage."
Why We Love It: To much bling normally throws us off, but the futuristic pattern and color choices of this design really works. We love it!
