Description

How can I make a beautiful, functional chair out of minimal and available materials? How can I take that design and turn it into a family of furniture?

I designed this modern and simple chair to be manufactured from a standard 8' long 2"x8", conserving materials and giving reclaimed lumber a second chance. After showing the chair at an exhibition, I was commissioned to make a set of the chairs, alongside matching stools and a kitchen island out of sustainably harvested ash wood.

After creating the matching chairs, countertop island and stools in Ash for this modernist cabin, I also made a few stools in other materials, such as​ this model in walnut and cork.
