Jerszy Seymour’s ‘Amateur Masters’ colorful chairs are made from polycaprolactone wax – a strong and 100% biodegradable material. They are part of the NgispeN collection, which was developed under the art direction of Richard Hutten. All the designs were inspired by the idea of ‘playing with tradition.’
Seymour’s ‘Amateur Masters’ chairs borrow classic modernist forms – yet in contrast to the mass production ideal of modernism, he created them using a hand molding technique. These chairs acknowledge their predecessors but also challenge the idea that form should develop over time. According to Seymour, it is not the form, but the systems that must be challenged and redesigned.
