Trine chair by John Makepeace

“My passion is to create masterpieces that enrich people’s lives and the language of furniture” This is what the in 1939 born British furniture maker John Makepeace explaines in short about his creations, and I can only agree these chairs are real masterpieces. I found out the name of the dining chair is Trine, not sure about the chair with the elbow rest.

“The design of this dining chair has been developed through several iterations. Its apparent simplicity arises from a radical approach both to its structure and to its anthropometric qualities. The back leg gives excellent lumbar support, and the back gives lateral stability. The seat is built up from many layers of burr oak, and these are expressed by the sculpting that draws the body into the chair.” Text Crafts council // Photographer unknown
