The last derivative in this seating series, STRUT, was to be really simple, with the ebony central cylinder, and the little feet coming out.
Viewed side-on STRUT and JESTER become closer to each other, but both are further away from LEDA.
Strut gave me that simple, pure structural shape when viewed from the side. Jester’s splayed legs interrupt that perfect profile. Strut was the road to the simplest outcome of the central cylinder idea. And it’s so expressive, it begins to resemble a human form, taking on a skeletal resemblance in the structure. There’s a lot of energy in that, and I look at the structures as kind of proto-humans, certainly robotic.
Excerpt from conversations between David Mac Laren and Stan d’Argeavel.
Timber and veneers are natural products, and a range of colour variations within each species is to be expected.
For some online purchases we are unable to specify what timbers are available at any one time as many of our products are made in a wide variety of timbers. In these cases please select your preference of light, medium or dark timber.
When checking out you can choose to be emailed images of available timber variations to choose from.
