Victorian Craft Awards

Kirby Bourke (Two Lines Studio) — 'B3 (B Cubed) Chair'

$5,000
The B3 chair draws inspiration from the modernist classic 'Wassily' or 'B3' chair by Marcel Breuer. The chair design driver came from the name B3 which triggered the idea, "what if I took the outline traditionally made with a tubular steel frame but made it a solid volume?". The result, the B3 Chair.
