The trees it use are wind felled and air seasoned for 2 years. The form of the chair from individually hand-shaped planks, steamed and bound together into a simple shape that is incredibly light, strong and comfortable. The shell is incredibly light and strong that flexes to the user.

Inspiration from designer:

I’ve always been fascinated by the techniques of boat building. There is an economy of material linked to geometry which makes these simple forms able to withstand the constant movement of the water around the hull. The design of this chair is the result of many conversations with a great boat builder about how this process works. It was in thinking about his observations we realized that much of what he was describing would have applications to other areas.
