Elegant in design and original in concept, the armchair also is exceptionally comfortable. The furniture employs durable materials intelligently and avoids superfluous ornamentation.
Light enough in weight to be moved around easily but sufficiently heavy to resist wind gusts, the armchair is capable of sustaining continuing exposure to the elements. Finger matched and tongue and groove joints enhance the hand crafted natural wood finishes. The associated table also may be placed along the front edge of the chair to form a chaise lounge. The furniture is manufactured in Indonesia using teak that is systematically harvested from renewable forests.
Trained at the Harvard Graduate School of Design under Bauhaus founder Walter Gropius and others, the architect became interested in furniture design after meeting George Nelson in New York and Ray and Charles Eames in southern California during the 1950ís.
