It’s the meeting between industrial strength and nature’s own untameable force that lock the Equal chair together in this unexpected marriage between industrial and traditional craftsmanship. A single screw seals it all off, the ever expanding and retracting wood in the tight grip of a single, seamless piece of cast metal.
Strong relationships between objects – as with people – are often characterized by complete opposites. One parts urge to expand and retract and the stillness and stability of the other. The result is harmony. This is how ash and cast aluminium are united in the Equal chair.
