About this project

The design of this dining chair has been developed through several iterations. Its apparent simplicity arises from a radical approach both to its structure and to its anthropometric qualities. The back leg gives excellent lumbar support, and the back gives lateral stability.  The seat is built up from many layers of burr oak, and these are expressed by the sculpting that draws the body into the chair.
