Woven Windsor Rocker

A elegant one-off piece by the highly collectible designer and maker Katie Walker.

Inspired by traditional Windsor chair-making techniques, the Windsor Rocker is made from ash and finished with a white hard-wax oil. The ash is from a locally grown sustainable source and, as is traditional with Windsor chair-making, was worked 'green' and steam bent. The seat of the Woven Windsor is woven with Riempie - which is a South African material, a leather thong or lace used mainly to make chair seats. Katie's use of traditional skills combined with her design aesthetic has produced a chair that is immensely strong yet which has a fluid form that is visually light.

The fluid tensile form, a further development of the wheelwright's craft expressed in a chair has justly proved a contemporary collectable. This designer's work is held in high regard and has been repeatedly shown at COLLECT, a major annual show organised by the Crafts Council in the prestigious context of the Saatchi Gallery in London.

An off shoot of this chair with a solid seat, is now in production along with an accompanying side table, as illustrated in the detail images accompanying this listing. Prices in British Pounds Sterling: Chair 2000, Table 675: (540mm diameter, 585mm high). Please enquire for further details.
