Daniel Shawn Turley, Pottstown, USA. Shawn creates truly unique forms in his work and has repeatedly participated in our annual Woodworking Competition (such as the pictured library ladder that won "Members' Choice" in our 2009 show). He also donated his time and energy into producing a table for WEM's major exhibition, Poplar Culture.
The Linna armchair is a more gentler side from designer Jader Almeida. Unlike his previous featured work, Linna is “honest.” There’s nothing flashy about it. It’s elegant and harmoniously blends into the room. As usual, the construction quality is amazing. The medium densified hardwood structure and multilaminated shells (backrest and seat) allows anatomic shapes, all made from CNC cuts and hand-made finishing processes.
While the actual assembly is fairly quick hours), waiting for the wood to swell and hold all the water takes FOREVER, but it's an amazing process to witness. Here are the pics and the info you need to do it yourself.
