It feels to us that Australian furniture design is in an exciting time. We are creating a style of design that is all our own and not the result of influence from other parts of the world. Our Ned seat design is an object with a story that is quintessential of Australian colonial culture.
There is something very Australian about the Ned seat, the design is in the spirit of Sir Sidney Nolan paintings of the Ned Kelly story and the Rogue man himself.
The Ned seat for us captures the essence in the making of the Ned Kelly armour – the timber Ned is made using bush craftsmanship. We have expanded on this by making a plastic and concrete versions from the timber mould of Camphor and Hoop Pine.
