This month we present the ”Fauteuil”, handmade by Ruben van der Scheer. The design of the chair came from playing with flowing lines and the desire to make a comfortable chair that also provides security and shelter. The chair is handmade out of ash wood, the finish is a mixture of boiled linseed oil and white pigment. This is to preserve the white color of the wood.
Ruben works from his workplace in Amsterdam. He combines craftsmanship with modern techniques. He often uses solid wood that grows in our environment, such as ash, elm and oak.
The coating was done by Maartje van den Noort. The chair is exclusively on sale this month at Restored, including (custom) fabrics, €2100, -
