This chair was designed and made as part of the Shropshire Ash Project as featured in the Countryside and Shropshire magazines. It is designed to be made in locally grown hardwoods giving the chair an incredibly small environmental footprint. The oak version of the chair seen in these picture makes the design completely durable in an outdoor setting. The chair is a modula and can be placed side by side to create a steam bent settee of any length. An upholstered option is also in development as well as other timbers, notably english elm.
