The Swinger

Designer piece Andromeda led to Perseus and both led to a whole family of chairs. First of all, came Older Brother then Crazy Dave, The Swinger, the Sleeping Baby Rocker and the Xzen Chair.

All of these were chairs designed to fit in a modern home; to be a handmade contribution to automated modern living, in an age when everything is outsourced to Asia because and cut, without a craftsman’s care, on a CNC machine.

These chairs, like all the chairs we have made, are made by human hands.
