Shiavello Gallery chair

Gallery Chair Schiavello

Gallery Chair, designed by Chris Connell, was commissioned by the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to coincide with the 2018 NGV Triennial. The design references the columns and stained glass ceiling of the NGV’s Great Hall – the chair’s back upholstery stitch detail and form reference the ceiling’s fractured forms, geometric angles and vibrant colours. An amalgamation of design, function and economics, the Gallery Chair is a flexible solution for use in dining spaces and functions or for visitor chairs and convention seating. The Gallery Chair was developed by the Schiavello Design Studio, led by Anton Schiavello.
