The Carvel Chair by Déanta Design has been steadily gathering attention around the world since it was launched in late 2014. Designed by Andrew Clancy of Déanta and Clancy Moore Architects, and made by Matthew O'Malley using traditional west of Ireland boad-building techiniques, it's light, strong and incredibly elegant. Collaborations with craftspeople and an awareness of a sense of place are hallmarks of the work of Clancy, the third speaker in our DESIGN BITES series.
An architect and designer, Andrew Clancy studied architecture at Univeristy College Dublin and established Clancy Moore Architects with Colm Moore in 2006. The work of the practice is concerned with examining craft and other traditions of making and using these to create unique, place-specific buildings, while with Déanta Design, he works to craft beautiful spaces and objects through a close and collaborative relationship with craftspeople.
Join Andrew Clancy at DESIGN BITES on Thursday 12th at 1.15pm in the ID2015 Design Hub at Dublin Castle, where he'll discuss his work and his fascination with objects of purpose.
