2016 marks the third edition of Cult’s annual ‘Chairity Project’, the esteemed charity event that invites leading Australian creatives to reinvent an iconic chair design. Each creative is given complete freedom to reinvent the chair, which is exhibited and auctioned off to a charity of the creative’s own choice.
For ‘Chairity Project 2016’, Cult invites 16 creatives from all disciplines — from architecture and photography, to graphic design and jewellery — to take on the unique challenge of reinterpreting the Officina chair. Cult is happy to welcome back 10 creatives who have participated in previous years such as bassike and Fiona Lynch, along with six new contributors including Marsha Golemac & Dan Hocking, Elke Kramer, Mim Design, Adam Cornish, We Are Triibe and Studio Twocan. The diversity of creatives taking part in the project results in a wide range of chair reinventions and a captivating exhibition and auction, which will take place 17-27 November.
