Lockdown 1.0. As two fidgety creatives (and brothers), we became drawn to and inspired by the stable, sturdy and decisively not ‘unprecedented’. We eventually found solace in the most predictable and humble of objects, the chair.
As an ode to this gloriously common furniture piece, the project’s first stage saw us design and build a unique chair a day over 19 days of lockdown. With most businesses shut, we embraced the simple materials available to us—27mm square-section timber and 40mm wood screws. We learnt two things: the bare essentials are all you need to create a unified collection… and our 27 times tables.
