winner

Monday, 23 July 2012

We've gone all topical today and decided to back what we hope will be a winner for JAMES AUSTIN. Austin is a young designer maker whose first CHAIR is part of a range called 'Project Won' which is geared towards the upcoming London 2012 games. The chair - along with the other pieces in the range - is made entirely of sports hall flooring salvaged from around the UK. Each piece is handmade, one piece at a time, in his Shropshire workshop using time tested traditional joinery techniques. The individual salvaged planks are hand sanded, leaving the original sports lines on display and then recoated with a natural wax oil.
