Dining chair for production in wood. Kingston Polytechnic School of Three Dimensional Design Furniture and Related Products BA Hon Mark Lewis 1980
The tall and short Carver dining chair is shown here is aimed at the high street retail trade. These dining chairs were designed to be made in batches of 500 and be packed ready for self-assembly via steel Allan head bolts. The seat and back are made from post-formed laminations of ash requiring only one molding forma from which all the seat rails and back components are cut. The arm and leg components are automatically machined from solid ash lengths. By lowering the height of the front leg component and adjusting the fixing bolt positions an option is created for the armless chair. This option is stackable and requires fewer components.
