Pino is a truly contemporary and distinct form, with a characteristic soft hexagonal hoop supporting a gently sculpted sling of seating wires. The seating wires gradually fan out to the rear of the chair, and the hoop is uniquely supported by legs that extend up to the top of the chair.
The sculpted seats of the Pino collection have been carefully refined to provide a level of comfort not often associated with wire furniture. Should additional comfort be required, optional fitted upholstered seat pads are available.
The Pino seating elements are supported by a set of complementary tables, including bar table, café table, side table and coffee table. Table bases are manufactured from steel, with table tops available in a range of compact laminate finishes.
Whilst manufactured from durable steel and zinc plated to withstand outdoor application, Pino is equally at home in commercial, hospitality and residential interior applications.
Pino is fully manufactured in Australia. Advanced computer controlled wire bending technology, CAD design and advanced laser cut welding jigs are combined with skilled craftsmanship, resulting in the fine detail and accuracy of these distinctive forms.
Keith Melbourne spent over a decade building a career in engineering. Working first in the aerospace industry and then the automotive industry. Specialising in the development of advanced engine technologies. Developing and patenting new inventions, and travelling the world to manage projects with client R&D groups.
Eventually this career path proved unsatisfying, and in 2004 Melbourne quit in search of a passion. He found himself studying furniture design in Western Australia, and discovered something that he loved.
Melbournes combined grasp of rational engineering and creative design is clearly evident in his work. Often characterised by clean flowing lines, his work is highly resolved and utilises efficient manufacturing processes.
Melbourne makes effective use of CAD and advanced manufacturing technologies, but is also committed to physical modeling during design development. As he states, CAD is a great tool but it is also rather dead, I also need to work with my hands, to touch and feel..
