1967 - Montreal Chair

Industrial designer and architect, Kjell Grant, studied under the notable sculptors, Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth, at the Royal College of Art in London, and Mies van der Rohe at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He has developed products for Cartier, Orrefors, Knoll, Rosenthal and Raymond Loewy N.Y (see previous post)

In 1967, Grant designed the furniture for the Australian Pavilion at the Montreal Exposition in Canada and the ‘Montreal Chairs’ resulting from this project are in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York.  He is currently an Adjunct Professor in the School of Architecture and Design at RMIT University and has inspired hundreds of young Australian designers.
