Fantastic Plastic

By  | 


“New Zealand designer Gregory Smith’s uber-sexy new ‘Retroflex’ chair marries the timeless design of Garth Chester’s iconic plywood ‘Curvesse’ chair of 1944 with the contemporary sensibility of a Philippe Starck. Available only from the fabulous Auckland design gallery Design 55, the ‘Retroflex’ sports dangerous curves crafted from molded acrylic, yet has a sophisticated minimalism. I think it’s destined to become a cult classic.”
