Firstly, let me say that this is NOT my design. A client approached me with a photo of this chair and the request to make him one. I asked him about the photo, but he couldn’t or wouldn’t say where it came from, muttered something about getting it from his son…
I have to feed my kids, so I went ahead and built it with mixed feelings, knowing I am copying someone’s design without permission. If anyone recognizes the design, I will be happy to know where I can beg forgiveness/ask belated permission!
The chair is made from Grey Poplar (Populus canescens) which I harvest and mill myself (sucker for punishment). I scaled dimensions ergonomically and it is actually quite comfortable to sit on. Doesn’t look it.
