Conus Chair by Stefan During

Some time ago Stefan During sent me photo’s of one of his new designs: the Conus Chair. To me it has some resemblance with the Safari Chair or Roorkhee or Campaign Chair.

The Conus chair is put together by the user from a separate seat, back, four legs, and two armrests.
First one fits the conical legs into the conical holes of the seat.
Then the swivelling back is fitted into the armrests, and lowered unto the tops of the legs.
There are two options for fitting the back, for shorter and for longer legs.
The Conus comes in two sizes; one as an easy chair, the other one as a higher version for sitting at a table.
The saddle-shaped back and the seat are upholstered in felt, or leather.
A table based on the same principle is also an option.
I make the Conus in oak or beech wood.
