A super lightweight chair with a slender, classic profile, Japser Morrison's Lightwood is of solid birch with choice of fabric, leather, web, or mesh seat. Lightwood will will make its British entrance during the London Design Festival.
Of Lightwood, Morrison says,
"Like many previous chair projects I have designed the Lightwood Chair is about structure, making use of the unbeatable craftsmanship of Maruni's wood technology to achieve a light wooden structure. This can be completed with a variety of different solutions for the seat, starting with the lightest, a white mesh, which leaves the structure partially visible, then a woven webbing which reminds us of shaker furniture, except that it's a synthetic webbing which makes an interesting contrast with the wood, and then the more traditional upholstered seat in fabric or leather, which provide extra comfort and can be removed for cleaning. It's a contract chair which is equally suitable to the home."
Find the Lightwood at the Jasper Morrison Shop. The London Design Festival takes place from 17 to 25 September.
