MPavilion 2021 'The Dancer' Chair by Nüüd Studio
Gavin Green

Nüüd Studio has created a seating solution to meet style and function criteria.

MPavilion is Australia's leading architectural commission and design event created by the Naomi Milgrom Foundation. Every year a new temporary pavilion, designed by an outstanding international architect, is erected in Melbourne's historic Queen Victoria Gardens to host a dynamic program of free events.

Nüüd Studio was commissioned to design the seating for MPavilion 2021, the eighth iteration in the series.

The chair both complements and activates the bright and joyful design of the MPavilion by MAP studio. The sustainable seating is weatherproof, stackable, lightweight and easy to clean and disinfect, as well as durable and versatile enough to sustain over 50,000 visitors.

This project has been longlisted in the seating design category of Dezeen Awards 2022.
