Mid-century meets the 1970s: Jointed & Jointed and Kirkby seating collaboration

Jointed and jointed kirkby

Well, here's an interesting collaboration. It combines the wonderful arcade-inspired fabrics of Kirkby with the striking, mid-century-influenced furniture designs from Jointed & Jointed to create some really eye-catching seating. 

Let's start with the furniture. Joined + Jointed are a collective of designers, united by their support for meticulous craft. These Trident seats and sofa are by Simon Pengelly (we featured another of his designs back here), a contemporary take on mid-century shapes. 

The upholstery fabrics come from another company we've featured before - Kirkby designs - and come from their new 'Arcade' collection, inspired – rather excitingly – by 1970s arcade games. They look fabulous used on these chairs and, together, make for a real statement piece of design. 

Not cheap however, and understandably so – a chair will set you back £915.
