I have been thinking about this chair design for 25 years so it is good to finally make one that I am happy with. The only problem is that it is designed as a stacking chair, and only one exists so far. In theory it is a stacking chair. It is made from Ash, and has a slightly springy seat. The legs are hollow so it is lighter than it looks.
