Melbourne designer Ross Didierâ€™s new Tiller chair and Terra Firma table are the latest additions to his eclectic contemporary furniture collection.
February 9th, 2010
The Tiller chair, with its solid, angled blades, takes its name from the pre-industrial tilling plough. Its outer faces of carefully engineered frame are angled into the centre as if it were a three-sided pyramid to achieve maximum fabricated strength and rigidity.
The chairs boast an individual character and mix a modern, crafted aesthetic with long-term appeal and comfort.
Constructed from a combination of solid Oak and precision-moulded veneers, the range is a stand-out for its tailored upholstery that assembles together using specialised hidden joiners not apparent on the surface.
The Tiller incorporate a mixture of environmental credentials including premium grade Dunlop Enduro foams and plantation-grown timbers with an option of clear polish or stain on the timber frames. Fabric and leathers can also be specified.
Ross Didier’s Terra Firma table can accommodate six, eight or 10-people with the option to clear polish or stain.
The design complements the Tiller chair in angle, form and earthy elements and evokes memories of the archetypal refectory table whilst using modern structural techniques from truss bridges with its tapered form creating a natural trapezium to the floor.
The Terra Firma, manufactured using solid plantation Oak and available in selected veneers, is exemplified by a versatile, rigid and practical design where strict engineering is disguised with a refined, sculpted aesthetic.
Designed to be flat packed, the table is built utilising specialist fixing allowing for efficient transporting and easy on site assembly.
