The Well Proven Chair, a statement seat that combines the best of science, technology and design methods to solve a worldwide environmental dilemma. The idea seems simple enough: combine the waste shavings with bio-resin, creating a chemical reaction that expands the products into a foamed structure. The mixture, which is porridge-like in texture, is applied to the underside of a chair shell by hand, not unlike the painstaking formation of your childhood sand castles. Once applied, the mixture foams explosively to create its own exuberant form and is anchored by the simple turned legs of American ash – a perfect blend of technological advances with a foundation in simple, handmade techniques.”
