ABOUT DINING CHAIR NO. 1
Dining Chair no. 1 is a simple but elegant composition of several crafted pieces. The seat is rimmed with an abrupt incline inspired by old-fashioned metal dustpans, whose form represents both strength and practical use. A rounded back with two symmetric keyhole shapes carved into the frame enhance the three dimensional experience of the chair, and add lightness and air to its feel.
Dining Chair no. 1 is made from certified moso bamboo, one of the most sustainable natural resources the world has. We Do Wood only work with certified plantations. This is our guarantee that our bamboo is grown without any chemicals, pesticides, herbicides or fertilizers. Furthermore the bamboo processing and furniture manufacturing is done without the use of harmful chemicals and all adhesives used during processing and production has the lowest formaldehyde emissions in the industry.
THE DESIGNER BEHIND THE CONCEPT…
“Sustainability is quintessential to our choice of materials and techniques. we simply place an honour in creating the most environmentally friendly furniture possible.”
Sebastian Jørgensen is the designer behind We Do Wood. As a trained furniture- and cabinetmaker, Sebastian is an experienced craftsman. However, Sebastian’s understanding of design originally comes from the world of art, which creates a different approach than most. Sebastian’s design process is a bit like painting: he usually make a sketch and goes directly to the workshop to make 1:1 mock ups and prototypes. Eventually Sebastian usea his background as a cabinet maker to prepare the piece for industrial production.
