The ‘One’ chair has a powerful presence that provides a modern touch and a sculptural flair.

The design builds on a tradition of minimalism and timeless aesthetics to achieve a result which is as functional as it is beautiful.

The chair was inspired by Poul Kjaerholm’s PK8, Charles and Ray Eames DSR & DSW in moulded plywood and the ‘Daisy’ chair by Danish designer Hans Sandgren Jakobsen.

The goal was to produce a shell chair design in hardwood rather than the moulded plywood chairs that inspired the design. The ‘One’ chair is defined by innovation, technical expertise and a passion for experimentation.

Each chair is designed and made in Britain by some of the finest crafts men and women. Their skill & attention to detail are evident.

The workshop received a UK government tax exemption for the project which could be classified as research and development. This unique design is based on a firm understanding of comfort, function and aesthetics.

Dimensions, H765, W510, D540, SH435
