Design by Brian Buchik.
Made in Canada by Room B.
Effortless good looks make this one highly versatile side chair. This first installment in the Chair 1 Series by Room B is a clean, modern dining chair with the collection's signature legs and exposed joinery. Chair 1A combines the durability of a solid hardwood frame with the lightness and strength of a molded plywood seat and backrest, achieving the perfect balance of design and ergonomics.
The Chair 1 Series consists of 3 chairs varying in design and style while utilizing interchangeable components in their construction. Building with interchangeable components creates less material waste and more efficient production methods, which all contribute to responsible and sustainable design. All 3 chairs are shipped fully assembled and are stackable. Stacking also makes them ideal in a variety of environments - from public spaces, to restaurants, cafés, and in the home. The solid hardwood frame features durable construction made entirely with mortise and tenon joinery and exposed bridal joints.
Select Natural Black Walnut, Natural White Oak, White Oiled White Oak or Red, Black or White lacquered finish.
The Dining Chair 1A is the first installment in a series of three. In the series, designer Buchik created three distinctively different side chairs which share some of the same physical components. From a production standpoint, the approach reduces set-up time, labor and material waste contributing to responsible design. Dining Chair 1A, distinguished by its exposed joinery and angled molded backrest is available in Natural Black Walnut, Natural White Oak, White Oiled White Oak or Red, Black or White lacquered finish.

Manufacturer: Room B
Room B was formed in 2009, when founder Brian Buchik decided to turn his passion for design and architecture towards the everyday products for the home and contract markets. The design and manufacturing company, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, strives to offer good design that is timeless. They believe that good design is all encompassing: creating products that not only look good, but are also practical, affordable, and responsible.
As a young company, Room B maintains that "every little bit matters", undertaking positive approaches early on to try to lower emissions, conserve energy and reduce waste. Designing stackable chairs, for example, allows the company to better utilize shipping space, reducing the amount of transportation required, reducing emissions and creating less packaging material. Room B has also adopted the practice of using interchangeable parts in some of their designs, reducing production times, energy and material waste. All products are made in Canada, with an eye toward continually greening the business and production.View other products from Room B
