When Mia first approached us with her presentation of an armchair based on details from the clothing industry, we were not that interested but concluded by telling Mia that if you highlight one thing, you have to remove something else. Mia promptly transformed that comment into an assignment and Johan Lindau explained that her remit was to work on what we now call “anti-design”. How simply can we visualise and construct an armchair which, without the balanced details that we choose carefully, just ends up being a totally ordinary armchair. Taylor is now a distinctive and natural armchair with its own strong integrity that is equally well suited to home life as public spaces.
