Chair Tuesday: Tessie chair


Chair Tuesday this week is the lovely Tessie chair from young American company Studio Dunn.  I really like its clean, solid lines and beautiful joinery.  It's mid-century styling and curving backrest no doubt pay homage to Hans Wegner's Wishbone Chair, but is in no way derivative, rather a modern take on classic styling.


Similar to last week's company Maruni, this design has a strong emphasis on timber and woodworking, having originally being set up as a community workshop.  

And to end, my favourite shot of Tessie.  This angle gives the the best view of the lovely lines and angles used in this chair.  The backrest here almost reminds me of antlers; of a young buck making his way through the forest.  Lovely.
