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.
Design that inspires the mind and transforms the space. The Chipman stool echoes the organic curves and hollows of the Chipman chair with a re-contoured seating surface that is more compact and narrower at the front, wider at the back to provide support for the relaxed postures people assume when perching. The low back of the one-piece cast aluminum stool grows organically out of the legs. The 29” seat height stool and its companion standing height table are ideal for rooftop terrace and café settings where people gather for casual social engagement.
