    The National Black Arts Festival is collaborating with Atlanta Beltline Inc. to bring artwork to the beltline areas. CONTRIBUTED

    Posted: 11:15 a.m. Tuesday, December 12, 2017

    Atlanta BeltLine Inc. and the National Black Arts Festival are starting a new cooperation to enhance artwork in the Atlanta BeltLine areas. Working together, both organizations will reach more communities and more artists, share knowledge and resources and support and encourage artists to continually push to get a confident, diverse public art expertise in Atlanta.

    ABI is currently in the process of reevaluating its public art plan with the goal of equity, access, and inclusion across the ethnic sector. Throughout the past couple of months, ABI has held meetings to be able to get feedback from communities using their suggestions for Art on the Atlanta BeltLine along with other programming.

    Results of this Art on the Atlanta BeltLine community involvement process highlighted an opportunity for greater outreach and connection to a more diverse set of artists in the juried selection through the last visual and performance functions. ABI and NBAF will operate to accomplish these goals by bringing together world-class artwork professionals, improving artistic programming, and greater diversity in planning and implementation. This new partnership is the first step in a collection of new collaborations which may reshape how Art on the Atlanta BeltLine joins with the broader community.

    NBAF features yearlong artistic and educational programming and is known as the oldest multidisciplinary arts business in the USA focused exclusively on the arts and artists of African descent. Art about the Atlanta BeltLine is your largest outdoor, temporary public art exhibition in the south west. By augmenting one individual’s efforts in performances, commissioned works, and visual art applications, NBAF and ABI can still continue to create a wide assortment of artists to ensure that they flourish in Atlanta’s global arts and culture scene.

    SP01 Design Tim Rundle Art Deco Furniture Collaboration

     Art Deco side tables

    Photography by SIMONE FIORINI FOR SP01

    Launched in 2016, SP01 is really the epitome of a modern global design manufacturer. Based in Australia, manufactured in Italy, and created in cooperation with artists from around the planet, the design firm is creating a name for itself through simple yet classic pieces. Along with also the corporation’s most up-to-date alliance is no exception.

    In partnership with Tim Rundle, SP01 has released a 10-piece collection that includes armchairs, tables, mirrors, along with an ottoman. The line has been filmed in Milan Design Week 2017, and balances a modern geometric aesthetic with Art Deco and Modernist influences. The mixture of both of these styles makes for a set that feels both new and instantly timeless–even 1 bit in the line is sufficient to make a statement.

    Much like SP01, Rundle himself is a research in international design. A native of New Zealand, he now runs on a London-based studio and established his collection for SP01 from the layout characteristics indigenous to pre-WWII Sydney. Sleek, clean lines of metal are offset by rich jewel-tone fabrics and luxe substances. Some of the pieces come in neutral colors for anyone adhering to a more minimalist colour palette, so there is something for everybody.

    Though if you’re going to buy 1 item, make it that the Caristo Armchair. Easily the celebrity of the collection, this re-interpretation of the traditional retro wingback chair comes in more than 70 upholstery choices for complete customization and will give a vintage feel to your living room decor.

    The set is on the pricier side: The ottomans begin at $700 whereas the armchairs begin at only around $2,000. Nevertheless, when you think about that the expert craftsmanship and classic design, they’re investment pieces worth splurging on. We talked to Rundle to learn about how the collaboration came about, and also what to expect from the line.

    How did the partnership with SP01 come about?

    A former colleague in Tom Dixon introduced me to Matt Lorrain, the Creative Director of SP01. We met at the Milan Furniture Fair soon after I had began my studio, and discussed SP01’s plans for the new brand. They had recently started their first set, which had been made by Metrica, an extremely respected Milanese design office, so I knew they were really severe. Shortly afterwards Matt got connected with a short for a new set, and it went from there.

    Can you inform us about your design inspiration for the cooperation?

    A vital theme throughout the set is your concept of choosing classic furniture kinds and stripping them back to the key, which makes them visually mild in terms of the way that they occupy a space. Even the Caristo Armchair, for example, could be viewed as our take on a traditional wingback chair but considering all the bulk eliminated, and longing on a lightweight framework. Even the Shu-Ying, on the other hand, is a variant of a ‘bathtub chair’, the kind that you find in hotel lobbies and bars, which can be comfortable but compact.

    How can you imagine the furniture being used?

    The pieces are made to be appropriate for both business spaces in addition to houses, and are constructed to last. We’d really like to find these pieces passed down through generations.

    In what ways will the set incorporate the pre-WWII structure of Sydney?

    While the set is definitely not retrospective, it will acknowledge Sydney’s design history. As an example, the silhouettes of this Michelle Mirrors have a graphic sensibility that draw on from the arched forms prevalent in Art Deco interiors, but are also pared back and injected with functionality, such as the tiny side-table surface.

    The modernist references really draw on postwar Italian Modernism and the feeling of confidence that has been portrayed through furniture made with lively stances and bold silhouettes at the time.

    Can you have a favourite thing from the collection?

    I am really pleased with the way the Caristo armchair turned out. The mount that connects the framework along with the plywood shell has been inspired by the simple, pragmatic method of hammering the conclusion of a steel tube to create a fixing stage. We chose this idea and refined it so that it’d feel appropriate on a luxury furniture piece.

    Initially I thought we would have to throw a component to replicate the exact form, but working together with the Italian producers of the collection, we could recreate the method in an honest way, allowing the natural behavior of the substance to specify the form.

    The collection will be available to buy in the US through YLiving in early 2018. Until then, contact info@SP01design.com to buy a piece directly from SP01, or take a look at some of the organization’s US retail partners.
