Say hi to Twill Chair, our new all-timber stacking chair designed by Gibson Karlo. With its extruded profiles and neatly trimmed ends, Twill Chair draws on the playful nostalgia of a fresh pack of plasticine.
"We love how the double profile looks and functions. It was inspired by plasticine strips and the repetition seen in Twill weaves. It creates a sense of ornament whilst creating strength in the legs and comfort in the backrest." — Sarah Gibson & Nicholas Karlovasitis, designers.
Subtle in aesthetic yet generous in practicality, Twill serves as a humble timber chair with plenty of character. Stacking four chairs high and made from solid ash timber. Twill Chair is available in Natural, Black, Ultra Blue and Silk Grey.
