For architect Ian Moore, whose career goes back as far as Tom’s, the Pylon chair not only depicts his favourite colour, orange, one that still appears in his interiors today, it is also a reminder of his initial training as a structural engineer in New Zealand. “In my early career, I worked on electricity pylons, along with other things such as wind turbines. I see these forms as quite striking in the landscape,” Ian says, whose own aesthetic leans toward the minimal and slightly industrial.
Ian also appreciates Tom’s humour and how this is expressed in his work. “There’s that typical British humour, and skilful design brought together,” he adds. And of course, the idea of creating minimal and elegant structures can be regularly seen in Ian’s streamlined apartments and bespoke homes in Sydney.
