Poloplaey launch in Leeds Corn Exchange
06 Oct 2021
Our new Poloplaey chair begins a tour around the UK, starting in the city where they are produced with an exhibition in the iconic landmark – Leeds Corn Exchange.
Alongside the regular Poloplaey chair, which has been selected by Designer as a contender for its Commercial Product of the Year and is now available to purchase, we are exhibiting six limited edition designs as part of the Poloplaey Artist Editions. We embarked on a project to support the creative arts, which have been hit hard throughout the pandemic. This involved connecting with six talented artists from different disciplines to adorn the Poloplaey chairs with a one of a kind design. These limited-edition chairs will be raffled at the end of the tour with the full proceeds going to MAP Charity, an alternative education provider for young people unable to access the mainstream school system.
Chris Illingworth, Director, Loft, commented: “We’re immensely proud and excited to bring you this project which is close to our hearts. The six local artists that we have enlisted the services of are incredibly talented and we cannot wait to share their work with you all. The opportunity to showcase our project at the iconic Leeds Corn Exchange makes it even more special and we’d encourage everyone to support this great cause!” Please follow this link for further details
