Design by Brian Buchik.
Made in Canada by Room B.
Graceful and spare, Chair 1C strips the chair to its basic requirements giving it incomparable lightness both visually and physically while maintaining seated comfort. It combines sleek, clean design with high quality and exceptional durability and strength. Simple construction and a light weight enables the chair to be stacked easily and compactly.
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 1C is the final installment in a series of three. In the series, designer Buchik created three distinctively different 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 1C, distinguished by its exposed joinery and angled open backrest is available in Natural Black Walnut, Natural White Oak, White Oiled White Oak or Red, Black or White lacquered finish.
Ships fully assembled. Stackable.
Material(s): Solid hardwood frame/backrest in oak, maple or walnut, molded plywood seat, beech core laminations with face veneers in oak, maple or walnut
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
