Mobilia is about the true nature of great design and continues to bring the world best in design to Perth in their beautiful Claremont showroom. Whilst I have had my eye on a few of their iconic chairs for sometime now, they currently remain on my ever-growing interior wishlist.
A feature chair can be the focal point of a space, and stand as a work of art, but my love for these chairs is more than aesthetic beauty. Form over function gets me every time and as a designer I am inclined to go for something that I like the look of regardless of how practical or comfortable it is, whilst my husband remains at the other end of the spectrum and function and comfort are always his priority. Form definitely did not come before function here though, so my wish of owning one of these may one day come true and have 'Basil's Stamp of Approval' as they are built for comfort as much as they are beauty.

Mobilia recently brought Jaime Hayon to Perth for their Design Circus 'In Conversation' series where we listened to Jaime talk about his inspiration for his incredible collection in collaboration with Fritz Hansen, which conveniently consisted of the chair currently at the top of my list! I thought who better than Jaime himself to convince Basil that I need one of his chairs in my studio space? Now the difficult decision is deciding on a colour...
Whilst I ponder on that, Hayley Parker from HPPR and I were lucky enough to lounge about in our favourites at Mobilia whilst shooting the HPPR Launch Campaign images shot by the very talented team at Shift Creative, as we imagined what it would be like to sit in them all day long!
