Trannon Furniture is targeting the home office market with the Act One chair, designed by company founder David Colwell, which launches on 8 June. Engineered mainly in wood from sustainable ash, the design keeps the use of metal to a minimum and is characterised by steam-bent curves. The seat and back are designed to move in a compensating manner using wooden springs under the seat and a timber torsion bar behind the back cushion. ‘Act One puts an end to the constant shifting about and searching for a more comfortable position,’ Colwell claims. The chair will be displayed in Trannon Furniture’s showroom in Wilton, near Salisbury in Scotland, and can also be viewed on its website, www.trannon.com.
