About Robert Chipman
Robert Chipman, ASLA has been designing award-winning furniture for Landscape Forms since the early 1990’s. A practicing landscape architect, he is founder and principal of Robert Chipman Landscape Architect in Austin, Texas. Chipman is an outdoorsman and climber dedicated to location sketching. His furniture design process is hands-on and sculptural, bringing expertise from a landscape architect’s point of view to the site elements that complement outdoor space. In addition to the IDEA award-winning Chipman chair and the growing Chipman line of seating and tables, his designs for Landscape Forms include the Plainwell and Austin benches, the Catena chair, Sorella planters, and the Solstice umbrella, winner of IDSA Gold & Best of NeoCon awards.

Austin blends modernist inspiration into a new interpretation that’s as timely as today. The Austin Bench, designed by landscape architect Robert Chipman, is a study in beautiful balance. Inspired by architecture of the 20s and classic modern furniture of the 50s, it expresses familiar themes in thoroughly contemporary terms. Austin balances lightness and substance, is relaxed, yet refined, poised but never boring. The cantilever version is a natural for minimalist spaces, the four-legged version a fine fit within a range of architectural styles. Composed of minimal parts, (just two extrusions create the seat and back in all versions) Austin masters the details, from its tapered slats to the lovely winged shape of its end piece. In aluminum or wood Austin is a high-design solution — and a breath of fresh air — for corporate and healthcare courtyards, atria, small-scale public places, and private retail space.
