It is with ambition that Goodrum embraced nostalgia in the creation of the Voom Collection, embarking on a design process that saw inspiration from the sculptural work of Alexander Calder, where raw sheet metal objects are placed to enhance public spaces.
“The Voom Collection, in its unupholstered form, sits in the garden as both a functional sofa and sunlounge, and a sculptural object, where beautiful light and shadow fall on the sheet metal’s opposing planes,” said Goodrum. “When the cushion is attached, the roll design has a retro language to contrast with the linear sheet metal and provides a relaxed comfort through the material selected.”
Material selection was of great importance in the process of creating the elegant and bold Voom Collection, with Tait Creative Director and co-founder, Susan Tait, opting to exclusively use the new Mokum Sole Boucle and Elba fabrics to form the collection.
“Mokum’s Sole Boucle and Elba fabrics bring luxurious texture indoor and outdoor, with their hues reflecting the vast Australian landscape,” said Tait. “This is how we envisioned the design, selected to complement the round, voluminous and gentle curves of this versatile and elegant collection.”
Gordon Tait, Founding Director of Tait, added, “The Voom collection transcends indoor-outdoor living. It’s quite retro. It’s like it’s had a past life. A modern classic.”
Available in Tait’s distinctively Australian colour palettes, the Voom Collection is once again underpinned by Tait’s commitment to sustainability, evident in the materials used to create the range and Tait’s local manufacturing principles. The Voom Collection can be placed in many configurations, with groupings of loungers and ottomans creating new sofa and sunlounge forms.
