Designed and made as an edition by John Makepeace OBE, Winner of the Prince Philip Designers Prize.
The design of this chair has evolved over a number of years. The objective is to provide a visually lively, secure and physically comfortable seat with five main components – a seat, back and three legs. It applies a materials technology developed at NASA to achieve high performance from minimal materials.
The curve, slope and sculpting of the seat draws the base of the spine to the back of the chair. The rear leg is shaped to provide vital lumbar support. The curved back embraces the body. Made in English oak and scorched to reveal the natural texture of the grain. Should buyers want six chairs all different, John would design another variation for their approval. Price per piece. Their names, from left to right, are: 1. Cloud. 2. Fountain. 3. Club. 4. Rondel. 5. Spade
