We shy away from doing things sustainably because we think it will cramp our style. Don’t believe it, exactly the opposite is true.
The new Achair, and Xtable in steam bent ash mark both a dramatic advance in construction and have an edgy style that is now.
Their most obvious feature is the tubular rivets, far stronger than conventional timber jointing, and are particularly well suited to steam bending and the flexible structures that make the designs so strong and comfortable.
Less obvious is the wood’s subtle texture, by looking at the latest in sawing technology, the most energy intensive bits of the making process have been removed, saving about 70% on energy, but retaining the benefits of craftsmanship.
Steam bent ash, copper tubular rivets, 10mm thick toughened glass.
