David Upfill-Brown, Saddleback Chairs (TABLES, CHAIRS, DESKS 2022)

“Saddleback Chairs” designed and made by David Upfill-Brown A pair of chairs made from yellow siris (Albizia xanthoxylon) from northern Queensland. Laminated and carved, upholstered in leather and finished in a mixture of oil and polyurethane. Another approach to a genre of chairs that I have been making occasionally for the past 15 years, seduced by the bell curve, the desire to achieve maximum comfort and dependent structurally on joinery from within the seat.
