The Ergonomic Chair
Dimensions: 12cm x 62cm x 70cm
This chair was made for an individual, and designed to his specific measurements. Despite the diversity in our body shapes, we all have to sit on chairs that are manufactured to an industry standard, to suit the “average” person. Maybe that’s why so many people have bad backs. In an ideal world we would all have our own personal chair.
‘A furniture maker’s life is full of repetition. I’ve tried to make a virtue of this “problem” by emphasising rather than resisting it. My work is therefore often composed of multiple and layered components. Over the years, these works have become ever-more complex, involving more components, shaped in increasingly complex ways.’
