The two Ws in the chair’s name stand for Windsor and Wire, which allude to its form and materials. It’s a hybrid piece, which gives a contemporary twist to a traditional design language.
The legs and seat are inspired by the classic lines of a Windsor chair, with the surface of the seat slightly carved for comfort. Shafts of 5mm powder coating metal wire extend upwards from below the seat. They fan slightly outwards from their point of origin before meeting the wooden backrest. This gives the chair a sculptural quality and sense of lightness. The playful juxtaposition of materials is typical of its designers, the multi-disciplinary design studio Hierve.
The WW chair is available in a solid wood version, or with an upholstered seat in a choice of fabrics and leather. The solid wood options include oak and American Walnut finished in natural oil. There’s also a stained wood option, which is available in white, grey and black.
H Furniture also offers a bespoke service, so clients can order a WW chair to different finishes in solid wood and the upholstery.
