Michelle is gracefully drawn from a tubular frame and embellished with a series of marble trays that make it the perfect valet.

Building on the success of the Michelle mirror series, Tim Rundle has developed the visual language of the arc to create seating that is an exercise in architectural geometry. On its own, a single Michelle chair makes a bold style statement, the variously oval or round backs and circular bases set upon fine tubular steel frames to create sculptural shapes in space.


Background

Tim Rundle is a London based Industrial Designer with experience across furniture, lighting, consumer products and transport. Prior to forming his own studio in 2015, he led the product design teams at Tom Dixon and Conran & Partners.

The work of Tim Rundle Studio is driven by context, with a focus on the design of products and systems that exist at the intersection between architecture and its inhabitants, as well as research driven consultancy projects in materials and manufacturing. A preoccupation with simplicity, improvement and the pragmatic application of creativity; combined with a rigorous and knowledgeable approach to the technical aspects of industrial production leads to results that are, at the same time, useful, engaging and relevant.

He then began working for Auckland based consultancy Formworks Design where, among other projects, he worked on the concept for Air New Zealand’s ground breaking seating products ‘skycouch’ and ‘spaceseat’.
