Well Proven Chaise

Marjan van Aubel & James Shaw

The Well Proven Chaise is made out of a mixture of bio-resin and wood chips, re-using timber waste.

___ Understanding that there is 50% to 80% of timber wastage during normal manufacture, Marjan van Aubel and James Shaw incorporated waste shavings into design using bio resin. A curious chemical reaction occurs when it is mixed with the shavings, expanding it into foam. The porridge-like mixture of resin and shavings is slapped on to the underside of the shell by hand, forming a strong and lightweight material. The exuberantly shaped seat is anchored by the simple turned legs of American ash, Walnut or Cherry wood.
