It was the scanning through my memories, sparked by visuals that reflect dynamic city life, yet grounded by my roots, that was the catalyst for the creation of the ILLUSION line. Today, it is an evolving line that was originally inspired during my early days living in New Zealand. I soon realised that, as much as I loved being surrounded by nature, scenic landscapes, forests and rugged mountains, I missed the hustle and bustle of city life. I am a city boy! The Illusion pieces were inspired by my love of city life, the energy, the buzz, the vibrancy; these pieces are a tribute to my yearning for city life.
ILLUSION DINE dining chairs with their colours and linear weaving represent motion and speed captured like a still image of a city highway in the night.
