Isen Dining / Occasional Chair

The ‘Isen’, $625 each; made to order.

A highly sculptural, one of a kind hardwood chair, exhibiting curves in all three dimensions, shown here in solid Black Walnut, accompanied by the ‘Schism’ dining table.

The shape of each component is achieved by laminating multiple layers of hardwood, some of those layers being sculpted before laminating to give the perfection of symmetry, and also to make this piece – while visually unique – easily reproducible.

The backrest is split, providing support for the body while not clashing with the spine the way most solid wood chairs do, and the concave seat holds comfortably. A slight lean backwards invites relaxation, while the ergonomics still encourage good posture.
