FOCUSING on the key pieces of furniture for the home:
A PLACE TO EAT, REST, SLEEP AND WORK.
KIMBLE WINDSOR CHAIR
Kimble is a Windsor chair named after a neighbouring village of High Wycome in Buckinghamshire, where the Windsor chair originated. The chair uses traditional Windsor chair making techniques in order to further the story, the evolution of the English Windsor chair. The contrast of the black walnut seat on this otherwise ash chair, attractively highlights the wedge tenon detail where the leg intersects with the top of the seat.
CLASSON TALL CHEST
Jason Miller’s furniture for De La Espada is inspired by the housing trend currently prevalent in Brooklyn, where 100-year-old brownstones, originally built as single family homes then converted into apartment buildings, are being converted back into single family homes. Many of these buildings still retain original details such as ornate fireplaces, moldings and woodwork, but are in need of renovations, creating an interesting juxtaposition of old and new design. Jason Miller’s product line captures this juxtaposition of time, purpose, and aesthetics.
SOLO DINING CHAIR
Inspired by the Eames Shell Chair, the Solo Chair is an updated version that transforms the early industrial look of the Eames iconic chair into a sophisticated, comfortable chair that is suitable both in domestic and commercial settings. Solo chair has an upholstered shell that hugs the sitting body to create a microcosmic universe for the person, becoming an object of shelter and refuge, where the person can be “solo” and undisturbed while being hugged in this position.
FRAME SOFA SYSTEM
The Frame series explores the architectural concept of tectonics, celebrating the art of construction. It was developed with the objective to create a single frame that could serve all the needs of the product such as a base, legs, decorative feature, and even practical support for accessories including trays. Made from solid wood, the frame’s appearance reveals clearly how it is constructed through the visible joinery details.
