Cornu chair

The Cornu chair was made for the Celebration of Craftsmanship and Design Chair Making Competition in 2010, where it was awarded the overall prize for best chair.

The name Cornu was derived from the mathematical form the Cornu spiral which closerly resembles the curve created between the arm and the back  creating the back leg.

The upholstery is Scottish leather from Andrew Muirhead & sons who have been trading leather since 1840 and supply to the most luxurious markets.

The seat cushion is supported by sprung webbing to add to the comfort of the chair.

The curved frame was achieved by pulling 27 1.5mm strips of American Black Walnut around a specially designed and manufactured former.
