Ember Chair by Sun at Six, Nude, Midcentury Chair in Oak

US$710 per item

About

Sun at Six is a contemporary furniture design studio that works with traditional Chinese joinery masters to handcraft our pieces using traditional joinery. The Ember chair is a versatile seat made using traditional joinery techniques. The wide, curved backrest is painstakingly cut from solid oak. Finished with our house made tenna oil and completed with exposed tenons. We designed the Ember chair as a durable, go-to workhorse for daily use. It’s meant for dining, working, and the rigors of daily life. The backrest gives the chair its unique flair, and is formed and positioned for resting your back and arms naturally. Great furniture begins with quality materials: raw, sustainably sourced white oak, our house-made tenna oil, developed with years of testing, and full-grain, vegetable-tanned leathers that patina with age. We work to bring out the natural character already present in our materials. People matter to us. We source leather from with a family-owned tannery in Italy, and work with traditional Chinese joinery masters, who hand build each piece of furniture using fading, ancient joinery techniques. We finish with our own tenna oil, a natural oil we press and make from tree oils and nuts ourselves.  We work hard to find quality, sustainably sourced hardwoods, which are air-dried, hand-sealed, and carefully kiln-dried according to our own recipes. • Solid white oak • Tenna oil finish • Crafted with traditional joinery.

About the Maker

Sun at Six

Sun at Six is a furniture design studio interested in how spaces affect our everyday choices and how we interact with others. We want to design spaces to nourish relationships that matter. Great furniture begins with quality materials: raw, sustainably sourced white oak, house-made tenna oil, and full-grain, vegetable-tanned leathers that patina with age. We work to bring out the natural character already present in our materials. People matter to us. We source leather from with a family-owned tannery in Italy, and work with traditional Chinese joinery masters, who hand build each piece of furniture using fading, ancient joinery techniques. We make our furniture using classical Chinese joinery, a fading traditional artform passed down from generation to generation, which uses intricate, interwoven joints to create furniture without the use of any nails or screws. Today, the use of traditional joinery techniques has begun to fade. The complex joints are more expensive and difficult to cut, and fewer craftsmen remain who possess the specialized knowledge required. Though production of classical pieces has dwindled, we aim to create new opportunities by applying traditional technique to new design. We work hard to find quality, sustainably sourced hardwoods, which are air-dried, hand-sealed, and carefully kiln-dried according to our own recipes. Finally, our pieces are finished with our own tenna oil, a natural oil which we press and make ourselves from tree oils and nuts.
