object: Rover Chair commissioned by Hugh Mappin

design concepts:The commission for this chair (made from the seat of a Rover) grew out of a discussion with the client about the work of Ron Arad. The leaf springs and Walnut frame form a dialectic between support and supported, while the details in the chair (wedged tenons, etc.), attempt to reflect the grace and refinement that was present in the late 60's British sedan.

materials: Walnut, steel spring from 1974 Ford Econoline, Seat from 1968 Rover TC 2000
