“The SE17 Chair, is an exercise in making during lockdown in which reliance on global supply chains and workshop spaces is eschewed in favor of utilizing existing and often overlooked material streams and spaces in a hyper-local context. First, a spring pole lathe was built on a South London terrace out of pallet wood. This analog machine was then used to turn downed branches from the local park into the mortise and tenon chair frame. The seat is made from plastic bags twisted into rope. All materials used in the creation of this chair were gathered from within the SE17 postcode area.”
