Using traditional craftsmanship and the tools of modern manufacture Isokon Plus proudly produces handmade furniture in East London. Our range of products includes iconic designs from the 1930s alongside contemporary pieces from today's most respected designers.
The Bodleian Libraries Chair is Isokon Plus’s latest product and our most recent collaboration with designers Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby.
The chair was selected from an impressive list of entries to win the Bodleian Libraries Chair competition and is only the third new chair developed specifically for the Bodleian since 1756.
The three-legged oak chair is a contemporary response to the brief which combines a strong sense of craft heritage, sculptural form and complex reader requirements. This circular construction produces a strong yet remarkably light oak chair.
The Bodleian Libraries Chair was also recently announced as the winner of the Icon Awards 2014 Furniture Design of the Year.
