AD Chair

Huw McConachy

Part of the larger Aard range by Huw McConachy, the AD Chair began rather fancifully with a caricature drawing of aardvarks relaxing in a chalet in Mt Hotham, Australia. Research into the period Windsor chair and a desire to minimise the number of components used in the construction influenced the design. The American oak AD Chair is composed of two side components (replicated) and dowel of a single diameter. For the designer, the repetition of the dowel calls to mind images of a winter landscape – log walls on cabins and pine forests.
