Process

The timber frame is turned by hand, with tenons pinned between the back legs to add strength and provide a subtle detail. Sourced from the last oak bark tannery in Britain, the woven leather is cut and burnished by hand before being tacked to the frame. Otis then uses waxed linen thread to secure the backrest before finishing with simple brass fixings.
