Zenith reveals the designerâ€™s latest product.
May 4th, 2010
Keith Melbourne’s latest product for Zenith follows through on the character of his previous furniture designs exploring the form and shape through a process of computer-aided design – C.A.D. – and some welcomed accidents.
Training and working as an engineer in the international aerospace and automotive industries for many years has clearly influenced Keith’s approach to furniture design.
His acclaimed furniture and lighting designs have been described as sitting in a realm where art meets engineering.
The Ellis collection is defined by beautiful flowing continuous lines. The pieces are geometric, yet also soft and inviting visually complex objects with sensual tactile appeal. The shells are supported on uncomplicated tubular steel frames, with characteristically large bend and diverging rails.
Compact yet comfortable, the seating elements are further enhanced by the precise tailored details of their covers.
Designed to complement the seating, there is a side table and coffee table – Lilla and Emily – which can be nested and arranged in groupings where they overlap allowing interplay between their forms.
The Ellis collection is designed and manufactured to meet environmental certification.
All frames on the seating are produced in linished stainless steel, with the option of black or white powder coat finish on the tables.
The seating can be upholstered in just about any contract fabric or leather..a degree of stretch in the fabric is required.
Keith Melbourne is giving a series of design seminars in ZENITH showrooms across Australia starting in early May.
