Tiller chairs and Terra Firma Tables

Constructed from a combination of solid Oak and precision-moulded veneers, the Tiller and Terra Firma range is a stand-out for its tailored upholstery and environmental credentials.

The Tiller chair, with its solid, angled blades, takes its name from the pre-industrial tilling plough. Its outer faces of carefully engineered framework are angled into the centre like a three sided pyramid to achieve maximum fabricated strength and rigidity.

The chairs boast an individual character and mix a modern, crafted aesthetic with long-term appeal and comfort.

Terra Firma tables evoke memories of the archetypal refectory table but borrow structural techniques utilised in truss bridges where the tapered form creates a natural trapezium to the floor.

The design is versatile, rigid and functional where the strict engineering is disguised within a refined and sculpted aesthetic.

Terra Firma is manufactured using plantation grown timber and the fabrication is designed to be flat packed using specialist fixings which allow these timber tables to be efficiently transported then easily assembled onsite with a simple hand tool.
