ROORKHEE CHAIR

Burma Teak, Vegetable Tanned Leather, Oxidized Steel Hardware

L 21" x W 21" x H 32"

Borrowing origins from the Roorkhee Chair, developed by the British Colonials in India and later redesigned as the Safari Chair by Kaare Klint in 1933, we designed the chair to transform into a Tote bag- the sides and grips disassembling into the seat, back and armrests. Hang it on your wall or rest it by the couch, carrying it on your person when you step out of the house. It's as much a personal belonging as a piece of furniture. As time passes, the surface records age and use- sunlight, wrinkles, wine stains and grimy edges- taking on a rich deep brown patina, alive and unique like its owner.
