Mt1 Armchair

mt1 armchair

Design Ron Arad, 2004
Rotational molded polyethylene monobloc
Made in Italy by Driade

"MT", or the initials that calls these pieces designed by Ron Arad, are pronounced as "empty" meaning "empty" and the gap is really the key element of this project. The volume, made through a rotational molding process, is in fact carved and the insides, finished in different colors. The MT collection is also available as a rocking chair.

Hailed as one of the foremost designers of the 20th Century, Ron Arad was born in Tel Aviv and studied at the Jerusalem Academy of Art before moving to London to enroll in the Architectural Association where he studied under Peter Cook, founder of Archigram. Ron Arad has successfully established a unique design style using unorthodox combinations of materials and concepts.

MT1 armchair is produced from a polyethylene monobloc with a sand white (RAL 1013) exterior with a choice of red, lilac, black or violet colored interior. Suitable for indoor/outdoor use. Please call the hive showroom with any questions: 1-866-663-4483.

Ron Arad

Hailed as one of the foremost designers of the 20th Century, Tel Aviv native Ron Arad attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem from 1971-73 before moving to London to study under Peter Cook, founder of Archigram, at the Architectural Association. In 1981, he scoured a scrapyard and combined a car seat with a structural tubing frame to create the postmodern Rover Chair, whose popularity significantly launched his career. Ron Arad’s unique design style would continue to use unorthodox combinations of materials and concepts. In 1994, he created the Bookworm bookshelf, a sturdy but flexible shelf that can coil or take on limitless shape. Employing bimorphic shapes from steel remained a trademark of Arad’s works.
Driade was born in 1968, some decades ago, in the same period that would characterize the twentieth century: both the rigor of geometric and rational design and , on the other hand, the recovery of pop art and its influence on pop and radical design. Today, the "design landscape" is quite different, permeated as it is by globalization and all-embracing digitization.... Driade is happy to continue a rich heritage of good design into the 21st century with works by Phillippe Starck, Ron Arad and more.
