Gunzel - formerly derogatory, the word gunzel originated from the Sydney Tramway Museum in the 1960s as a term for the harebrained rail fans from south-of-the-boarder ; ‘the Victorians’, who shot at things with cameras. Believed to derive from the American slang gunsel
(“gangster or hoodlum who uses a gun”), popularised in books such as The Maltese Falcon in which a gunsel was implied to be somewhat foolish and reckless. Engineered is solid timber, the Gunzel seating collection is designed with a smart and formal geometry, but retains an organic comfort that is sculpted into the backrest.
