Boyd Collection Launch
Thu May 18th
We are delighted to introduce The Boyd Collection
– original furniture designs by Robin Boyd.
In 1958, when Robin Boyd designed 290 Walsh Street, South Yarra, the house was furnished simply,
with pieces designed by Boyd himself: two sofas, a dining table, two coffee tables, a sideboard and a daybed.
Each, a masterpiece of crafted furniture, beautiful and functional, made from Australian hardwoods, covered
with Australian wool fabrics and tables topped with cork tiles.
Robin Boyd’s very special Walsh Street furniture has been exclusively produced and is being brought
to market for the first time. Press Release info
The Boyd Collection has been manufactured here in Melbourne, with each piece having been faithfully produced
to the same specifications, materials and functional solutions of Robin Boyd’s originals. Each is an expression
of the creativity and versatility of his work, and is testament to his design principles of durability, quality and clarity form.
Behind the making of each piece are two collaborators and long standing friends, who both share an admiration
for Robin’s design aesthetics and exceptional furniture pieces: KFive + Kinnarps’s CEO Erna Walsh and Tony Lee,
Founder of the Robin Boyd Foundation, who have worked together to create this collection. Proceeds from the sale
of pieces within the Boyd Collection will be donated to the Foundation.
We look forward to sharing more images and information with you over the coming fortnight and hope you
enjoy seeing these incredible pieces in the market.
