Design: Anthony Hartley and Mr Smith
Wicked second Chair by Anthony Hartley
Mr Smith the Second is a multi-coloured laminated beech chair by UK furniture designer Anthony Hartley. Using both his skills as a cabinet maker and education in contemporary furniture design, Hartley makes each piece by hand from original drawings to finished product.
This latest chair, named Mr. Smith the Second, is colored beech wood with a high-gloss lacquer whose colour choices and slatted design only emphasize the waviness of the chair. It looks like a giant piece of candy.
Launched Tent London 22-25 September 2011 at the Old Truman Brewery London E1, part of London Design Festival.
