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.
Classic in form. Sleek in steel. Sorella is the lovely Italian word for “sister” and an apt name for this attractive
family group. Sorella planters are related in their steel construction and softly
curved rectilinear profile, complimentary in their individual shapes and sizes.
Square and rectangle shapes in two heights offer an unusually broad
vocabulary of elements for outdoor or indoor use. Simple and elegant,
Sorella is comfortable with traditional and contemporary architecture,
furniture and landscapes, in public and private spaces. Choose a powdercoated metal to suit the setting.
