This chair sucks

This chair expresses the self doubt and frustration we experience whenever we try to make anything. The piece is hand planed and carved from Sapele. Carving Sapele is never usually done because of its interlocking grain, this was a mistake made in the process of making, an example of our naivety. The underneath of the stool is left with a rough hand- planed finish, a gesture to the fact that we cannot yet afford real machining tools, nor know how to use them. The decision we made to call it a ‘chair’ when it’s really more of a stool or a bench represents our own predisposition to compare our work to those works which are non-comparable.

At Six Dots design, all of our pieces are primarily works of art and should be treated as such. Each piece is hand made, unique and made using inherently strong and long lasting methods of construction. None of our pieces have, however, been through any strength or safety testing. Six Dots design, therefore, cannot guarantee the longevity or safety of any piece. Re-oiling of the piece must be done using traditional Danish Oil. Caution must be taken if re-sanding the piece to not remove any of the pyrographic lettering.
