The wirewood chair is a chair simply composed from a steel wire frame over a wooden base – a combination of the two typologies of mid-century Modernist wire chairs and the traditional Shaker style.

The wire frame is jointed with the base of the chair by insertion into holes in the solid timber. This form gives the chair its own individual look.

My intention was to reference the classic forms and basic materials of historical furniture in order to reinterpret the contemporary chair.
