“IDEA” Design Award (Bronze) winner 2014, ‘Outdoor Design’ Category, Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA), and a collaboration between Robert Chipman, ASLA and Landscape Forms. I represented Landscape Forms in the design and implementation of this chairs and table, part of Landscape Forms’ Terrace series aimed at high end outdoor protected spaces. The Chipman Collection includes a cast aluminum chair, with and without arms, a bar stool, and round tables in dining, standing, and lounge heights. Table tops are available in three diameters. In its unadorned invention and clarity Chipman has international expression and universal appeal. Delicate in scale and proportion, it is heavy enough for rooftop terraces but light enough to move around. The one-piece cast chair seat and back has seamlessly welded-on legs and arms; the table has a flat aluminum top encircled by a tapered cast rim and an inverted cone-shaped stem with feet; both raise detail and finish to high art. There is poetry in the curves and hollows, shadows and surfaces of mountain peaks, says Landscape Architect Robert Chipman -- and his stunning sculptural chair and table collection channels the magic. This beautiful expression of form and feeling inspires themind and transforms the high-profile social spaces for which it is created. The Chipman Collection is a new modern classic with a fresh edge that takes a deserved place in the best outdoor spaces of the leading urban architecture of our day.
