BassamFellows Brutus Dining Chair
by Craig Bassam & Scott Fellows
The Brutus chair is something strong and solid, but in this case perspective is everything – the legs are elliptical, tapering down from the seat to the floor, and shaped like a rounded shark’s fin, so they look broad from one angle, and remarkably thin from another. As with the BassamFellows Tractor Stool, the legs are inserted directly into the seat with a large tenon.
The Brutus chairs are designs for now, when the Brutalist tendencies of Le Corbusier et al are again in the collective consciousness of the design world. They are designs with personality – “kawaii” as the Japanese say. “Chairs are not just utilitarian objects, they have to have personality, they have to be loved,” says Craig Bassam.
