Mim Design with mentoring from artist Kerry Armstrong, reinvented the Officina chair using layers of paint, and will donate the proceeds to Beyond Blue. Miriam Fanning of Mim Design shares, “The Officina chair is an art piece in its own right. Something we aspire to is the melding of colour and texture, and being avid art followers as a studio, it has been a fantastic experience having the opportunity to create something unique. Not only do we love the vibrancy and layered texture of the application, but we feel the chair has synergies with our chosen charity, Beyond Blue. Mental illness does not discriminate and we need to be talking more about the issue. The work of Beyond Blue is extremely important and so we wanted to get behind this worthy cause, with a chair that will inspire the community to sit down and open the lines of communication.” The chair will be auctioned off with full proceeds going to Beyond Blue. The auction will go Live on 17 November and closes 27 November at 9.00pm EST. Visit www.galabid.com/chairity2016 for more information.
