Young designer Steven Orlowski takes his cue from science, numbers, nature and Federation Square.
January 5th, 2009
Showcased at Sydney’s premier event for new and emerging designers – the Australian International Furniture – Steven Orlowski certainly stands out as an innovative young designer seeking to push the boundaries of furniture design.
With a record number of products on display, and numerous entries from UTS, RMIT, the University of Western Sydney, Lidcombe TAFE and East Gippsland Institute of TAFE, the Fair has seen seating emerge as a strong trend for 2009.
Orlowski’s angular, industrial-style chair certainly stood out. Drawing influence from both nature and man-made forms, Orlowski says that he has been working most recently with geometric shapes, numbers and science and looking at their relationship with ergonomics.
In particular, he took influence from the shapes and formation of Melbourne’s Federation Square, adding bright monochrome colour to further accentuate the lines of his design.
Also recently nominated for the annual graduate exhibition run with Object Gallery, Surry Hills, Orlowski is definitely one to watch in the future.
