Dean Norton — Float Chair, 2022
Float Chair explores transparent forms and subtle texture overlays. The chair is light, shape-shifting and made entirely of glass. Its seamless form changes depending on its viewing angle, and with the help of material opacity, textured layering, and a dynamic mix of fused straight lines and curved edges. Float Chair is an extension of Dean Norton’s Float series and continues his language of visually engaging functional pieces.
Dean Norton develops products that consider form, function, refined detailing, and harmony in materials. Drawing inspiration from several contemporary Influences, he aims to create enduring pieces that connect on an emotional level, merging a balance between art and design whilst maintaining a minimalist design aesthetic. Born and raised in Essex, England, Dean originally studied graphic design before continuing his journey as an interior designer, graduating in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts degree (Hons) in Retail Interior Design from University of the Arts London. Now based in Melbourne, Dean launched his studio in 2017, drawing upon his design experience to create visually engaging, locally made pieces including furniture, objects, and lighting, re-imagining a variety of sculptural forms through the exploration of finishes and materials such as glass, mirror, steel, and timber.
