The brief was to create a beautiful wooden stackable chair. The chair’s classic proportions let the detail produce its unique identity. The main distinctive detail is the cast aluminium leg bracket that attaches to the solid oak legs and oak veneered ply seat and back. The name Hatcham derives from the old name of the foundry that helped produce the casting in east London, originally named ‘Hatcham Ironworks’. To reflect a bit of the history of the old works cast-lettering was added on the inside of the bracket.
