Two Lines Studio — Simple(y) (a)Settee, 2022
“I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.” ― Henry David Thoreau.
Simple(y) (a)Settee is a sculptural abstraction of the chair. Heavy and hard yet curved and playful, this chair is stoic, reliable, and welcoming. Made with patinated brass, it is not just a piece of furnishing but is a meaningful and lasting sculptural object with character and soul. I picture this chair sitting patiently in the corner, ready to help when needed – one day covered in clothes, the next a stack of books. It is ready to hold our weight in a moment of silence or be climbed over like an outdoor playground. The chair will always be there, the patina changing with time and memories.
Striking a chord between functionality and statement art, Geelong-based Two Lines Studio blends the conventions of sculpture and structure. Crafted out of a passion and appreciation for skilled tradesmanship and architectural design, founding director Kirby Bourke, brings to the fold his 13 years’ experience in metal fabrication as well as a Bachelor of Design (Architecture).
