It’s been a while since a chair has caught my attention, but Intro, designed by Brodie Neill, had me staring the second I laid eyes upon it. I could quote Norman and say how smooth curves are aesthetically appealing, or refer to Lovegrove and rave about the pulchritude of organic shapes, but when it comes to a design that I truly like, I think its easiest to just speak my mind.
Neill’s progressive approach to form is a seductive culmination of serene fluidity and digital precision. Intro’s sleek curves and gaping apertures produce an inimitable composition. Instances of light reflecting off its lacquered, undulating surface seem to propel me into a state of creative visualization and trance. As long as there is the slightest evidence of light surrounding this chair, its elegance will be impossible to ignore.
