The first 1:1 mock-up in Douglas fir


The chair was the first item we designed to set the overall direction of 2 Bessborough Street project. The hefty hexagonal building gave us an idea to start with a hexagonal column, then divide it to 4 panels and turn 2 sides to make seat and back.

We initially tested the construction idea in douglas fir and the final pieces were made in stained European oak.

Prototype: Joining the arm panel
Prototype: Making the curve for the seat
Prototype: Glueing the panels together
Oak boards were joined, cut in angle, and planed
