Furniture designer Gary von Broekhoven has created a range of products for the Christmas at the Midland Grand fair, taking place in London’s St Pancras Chambers from 5-7 December. The exhibition is von Broekhoven’s first in the capital and, he says, aims to ‘illustrate the harmony between aesthetics and ergonomics’. He cites My Chair (pictured), which tilts forward so users sit upright more comfortably, as an example. ‘Lots of modern pieces look nice, but ultimately are not ergonomic. My work bears this in mind,’ he adds.
Curated by Sea Design, the exhibition focuses on the geometric identity created by consultancy Roundel, which was used on British Rail’s freight trains in the 1980s and 1990s.
