“Designer Liam Mooney‘s latest design comes to life in a whimsical mobile installation at the iArt Project Gallery. The Balafon chair is the starting point of what Liam calls an exploration into a kinder and warmer way of working. ‘Le Corbusier famously said the house is a machine for living. Modernism has been over for many decades but we still imitate a style that no longer serves us’, says Liam. The form and construction of the Balafon chair is inspired by the West African balafon. The chair is designed around a single steel frame and can be configured in 4 different ways… Liam used epoxy coated mild steel and pine ply for the design. Visit iArt (now renamed Brundyn+Gonsalves) to see Liam’s show A House is not a Machine for Living at Wembley Square in Cape Town. The show ends 26 October 2011.
