A&A is the collaboration of two practitioners from completely different disciplines and cultures: Australian industrial designer Adam Goodrum (Rigg Design Prize winner 2015) and straw marquetry artisan Arthur Seigneur, a French émigré and one of an estimated 25 practitioners globally who maintain the 17th Century practice of straw marquetry.

A&A ‘Exquisite Corpse / Cadavre Exquis’ is their debut solo exhibition premiering three new unique pieces: Talleo, a tallboy; Archant, a console; and Longbow, a credenza. ‘Exquisite Corpse’, the Surrealist parlour game, describes A&A’s process: Goodrum initiates the shape and pattern, and Seigneur finishes the works with hand-dyed straw in custom hues, and labour-intensive by-hand marquetry technique.
