Quantity

About

This chair evokes a feeling of solidity, weight and forward movement. Notable features are the "negative back" where the backrest appears to float. Ergonomically-friendly features including hand-shaped back, arms and scooped seat. Each piece is unique due to the shaping process. Resting on a hand-blackened steel frame the piece is finished with oil to achieve its rich texture. Solid walnut or Shou-sugi-ban Ash (Ash that has been charred by flame to achieve unique texture) are notable options. This is a bespoke piece, custom dimensions, materials, colors and finishes (both interior and exterior) can be accommodated. Please inquire for pricing. All Stefan Rurak studio pieces are designed and handcrafted in Brooklyn, New York.
