Spire Chair

100% Custom Piece. Please contact us for further information and pricing.



The Spire Chair was designed based on the specific construction details used on the core of Melbourne’s iconic Arts Center Spire.  Straight sectioned steel going cylindrical tubes of steel make up much of the spire’s framework as thousands of Melbournians see every day.

This beautiful junction creates structural triangulation which adds significant strength with minimal material.  Hence the chair is ultra light, utilising such small section timber – but extremely strong and stable due to the extensive triangulation.

There’s also a purposeful “kink” in the bottom and top cylinders, which adds a beautiful built-in rocking motion coupled together with a higher back rest.  Originally designed as a board room chair, the rocking motion works beautifully in allowing the sitter to move around during meetings, which is the true secret in ergonomic, task driven seating – move!   The leather seat and back rest increase the comfort levels further for those long sessions.  Perfect for both the office and the home.

NB: The images shown are of mountain ash under-frame, covered with mid-grey Scottish leather upholstery.  Other timbers and upholstery can be utilised based on your preferences and requirements.

Sustainability is our essence, not just a tag line.
Good Design is sustainable. Minimal materials, cleverly put together, avoiding unnecessary production and waste. Well crafted designs that last a long time, because if you buy cheap you pay twice, and so does the environment.

Sustainability is about health, avoiding bad chemicals, using non-toxic materials.  Choice of materials is important. We prefer natural fibres in our fabrics. Wools, cottons, linens, and leather.  Timber is a great choice for sustainable outcomes. Forests are good for our environment, and timber production has many eco-benefits. We prefer timbers that are properly harvested using sustainable forestry practices, and timbers that last. We use glass, or metal when that’s what the item needs to be beautiful, or functional, or to last a long time. That’s part of a sustainable outcome too.
