The P1 and P2 Chairs by Christel Hadiwibawa
P1 and P2 collection was designed by Australian designer Christel Hadiwibawa during his Graduate studies at the Canberra School of Art. The chairs are inspired by buildings across Asia that use bamboo scaffolding for its properties of strength, flexibility and durability. Both bamboo and concrete are durable materials suited to both the domestic and protected outdoor environment.
They are definitely two very interesting pieces. By interesting what I really mean is odd. They look very artistic, and they really are, but that’s not enough when it comes to basic furniture pieces that you see in every home. But let’s be open-minded and give this design a chance.
When you take a closer look at it you see that it has a very solid base. The bamboo is a very strong material, so it’s not that surprising that the designer was able to include it in his project. And because it’s also very flexible it makes a perfect candidate for this purpose. The chairs offer you a unique experience. They look very architectural, probably because, as mentioned before, they were inspired by buildings across Asia. If you’re looking for something unique, not necessarily traditional, that really makes an impression on anyone who sees it, then these two chairs could be the ones.
