Thunderbird

When designing a new chair it is always tempting just to go with the unsullied idea. To come up with something so compelling that it will prove irresistible. The only problem is that a chair has to serve a very basic function one that often demands way too much of a pure design. Someone has to sit in it. This may sound obvious but it is often overlooked. The Thunderbird is a case in point and has gone through many iterations, making it as comfortable as it was beautiful proved a real challenge. A chair that started out as an easy sketch soon become a near impossible puzzle, sure it looks simple, the best things often do, but it was determined not to be sat on. We persevered of course and now, courtesy of twelve coil springs, three different densities of shaped foam and some brilliant upholstery the Thunderbird has realised its potential. It is the perfect easy chair especially when partnered with its optional footstool and also comes in a full range of sofas. Poised and taut when unoccupied and when occupied guaranteed to make anyone sitting in it look fantastic.
