Pembroke chair range

About this project

It started with a course in green woodworking and Windsor chair making with Gudrun Leitz. Along with 11 other designers I spent a week acquainting myself with the pole lathe, adze and steam bending - which I hadn’t done since college. The result was a chair which I called Pembroke since it was inspired by the traditional Welsh stick chair. I went on to design a small range which is now manufactured by expert chair makers, Sitting Firm.
