Additional Info

Eight icons of design have joined forces with Orange22 Design Lab to launch the firm's Blank Canvas Project. All of the super high-profile designers have created new editions of Orange22's indoor-outdoor, eco-friendly Botanist furniture. Botanist matches each designer's royalty to a foundation or charity of their choice. The Flight representing freedom is a design of Margo Chase whose award winning designs have gained her international recognition.

What was your inspiration?
This design is an expression of the freedom of flight. The shapes are biomorphic and abstract- birds, but not birds. They scatter across the curved surfaces like leaves blown by the breeze, random, chaotic, joyful. The colors are earth tones, the color of plains, forests and deserts, the color of the land beneath the sky and the cycle of the seasons. I recently learned to fly. Flying a small plane is a study in contradictions; it is both an expression of freedom and an acknowledgment of man's lack of freedom. I am pushing my self expression further than most pilots by learning aerobatics. Being able to do loops, rolls and hammerheads allows me to play in all three dimensions. But even the best airplane can only approximate the experience a bird must have. Knowing instinctively how to fly from soon after birth, to them, the sky must feel like home.


Why is it important for you to give back?
The Sierra Club works to preserve our open spaces, protect wilderness and endangered species, and provide outdoor programs and education. Their work makes it possible for everyone to enjoy the freedom of the natural world.

Design Benefits:
A percentage of the sale of the Flight line goes to the Sierra Club, America's oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.
