Sustainability is slowly but steadily integrating itself into the core of furniture design. More and more furniture designers are using either recycled materials or natural ingredients for a lower footprint. After the sustainable Peel Chair, Marée Chair, and Path Chair, Daisee Chair by London-based designer Alex Borrell aka Borrellski is another understated yet exquisite addition to the gaggle of sustainable furniture.
The whimsical Daisee chair comes in a unique three-legged design but serves as a versatile seating option. The chair can be used in all indoor and outdoor settings. Created with sustainability at the core, the chair forgoes plastic entirely.
It is framed from a single three-meter of lightweight steel tubing and locally sourced repurposed ash timber. The chair consciously does without fabrics, glues, artificial paints, powder-coating, sealants, and varnishes to avoid harmful impacts on the environment. However, to increase its longevity, the designer has used a natural protective layering of beeswax.
Borrellski treated the welded steel frame with a patina to create a distinct blackish-blue tinge to it. He also used a set of custom-milled screws to add an animated effect to the front of the timber backrest and seat. The backrest looks like the head of the Bad Robot Production Company’s robot logo. The semi-oval shape of the seat allows for a comfortable plunging, contouring the curves of the body.
The designer wishes to transform unique features of the raw material, transmuting them into key design elements. His Daisee collection is rife with one-of-a-kind pieces and the Daisee chair is an inimitable piece with its wobbly grains, knots, and discoloration of wood in places. Needless to say, this simple, elegant piece of furniture is a work of art!
