Costello Seat Seat by Kent Gration

Home > Winners > #57574


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Costello Seat

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Seat

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for the piece was to showcase bamboo as a high-end versatile material using hand-based limited production techniques, as an alternative to the plethora of mass produced petroleum-based furniture pieces. A focus was placed on using environmentally-aware production methods and finishes, whilst placing importance on the tactile qualities of the material increasing its longevity and retention as a consumer item. The bamboo end-grain patterning creates a visually complex piece.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Costello seat’s organic form and sophisticated use of laminated bamboo, reveals a mosaic of vertical and horizontal DNA-like grain patterns, representing innovation in design and material usage. A focus has been placed upon the exotic and tactile qualities of the piece, imbuing a personable sense of warmth and engagement. The piece is hand assembled and finished using CNC components and can be custom designed for children.
