We set out to make the simple chair that captures the purity of a well milled piece of American hardwood. Special attention is paid to how each piece connects to the next with every joint becoming a subtle ornamentation that reveals the chairs construction and heightens awareness of the material. That is also, why we chose a finish that would not amber or discolor, but rather preserve the natural beauty of wood. Because it is important to us to make the these sensibilities of hand made studio furniture accessible and affordable, we designed a chair that could be made using simple tools and processes entirely in our small wood shop in only one day. We find there is a romance to the idea that an individual can contact a maker have a chair made to order in one day. To reach more people the Day Chair disassembles for shipping friendly packaging.
