Panel discussion: The Modernist wave

07 Feb 2019

Artists, designers, collectors and dealers reflected on Clement Meadmore’s enduring impact on Australian design since the creation of his famous Corded Chair in 1951.

Throughout the 1950s and early 1960s, Meadmore designed furniture and lighting pieces that became synonymous with the new modernist aesthetic, championed by mid-century architects, artists and designers. Almost 70 years on, Meadmore’s sculptural approach to industrial design still resonates today.
