I design & create sculptural chairs and seating where structural integrity, comfort and superior function are unified into a pure, sublime and streamlined aesthetic form. Derived from the inherent magnificence of the living tree and with the warmth and tactile feel that only wood can give. Looking beyond the horizon, forward thinking and building upon the principles of excellence in chair making with the resonance of good ergonomics.
A timeless elegance encapsulated within innovative works of wonder.
Studio visits are welcome.
A new project starts with a dialogue & exchange of ideas between client & designer/maker to formulate the design brief. Addressing the location, function dynamics, traffic, emotive themes & budget. An opportunity to Listen, learn & explore.
Each project is unique & so pricing varies accordingly.
After initial site visit/design fees, a deposit of 50% is required before making.
Depending on the scale of project either stage payments through out the duration or balance payable upon completion.
