The name immediately evokes the beautiful Australian city. The curved shapes that chase each other in the backrest’s design recall in particular the lines of the Opera House.
This has therefore become the baptismal name of the armchair: conjured with the intention of dressing the backrest in a new way: using leather instead of the soft hides typical of the upholstery that was en vogue in English and colonial armchairs.
Of course, the work needs to be transformed from “upholstery” into “saddlery”, but it allows creation of a new expressive vocabulary without the slightest sacrifice in comfort: the curved, fan-shaped cuts are required to cover the entire structure, but at the same time add personality to the whole.
The wooden structure supports the fabric seat, softly contrasting with the backrest. The details of seams and combinations enrich the whole.
