DURABLE LARCH WOOD
The Fieldchair is completely made out of untreated larch wood. This gives the chair its natural look and emphasizes the strength of the material. Larch wood is very durable and can last up to 10-15 years even without treatment. When actually left untreated, the material ages into a silvery grey.
SUSTAINABLY MANAGED FOREST
The larch wood comes from the Dutch forests that are sustainably managed by the State Forest Commission. Every year many trees are harvested from these forests and new trees are planted to keep the Dutch forests healthy. The sustainable approach of the State Forest Commission have lead the harvested wood to be FSC-certificied and of a very high quality with a sustainable class of 3.
FROM LOGS TO STURDY BEAMS
The wood from the Dutch forests is bought from an approved organization that manages all processed wood from the State Forest Commission. After that, it is processed into sturdy, thick beams at a Dutch manufacturer.
The beams are sanded, planed and prepared to be assembled.
CONNECTING THE BEAMS
Strong polyester connections are used in assembling the Fieldchair. They keep the beams together, while leaving narrow spaces in between. Thanks to these narrow spaces the Fieldchair offers more comfort. The connections between the bottom seat and backrest create enough space for the chair to seamlessly fold into a compact shape.
LOOP AT THE END OF THE CYCLE
A strong loop of textile is added at the front of the seat. This textile loop is strong enough to keep the weight of the chair when it’s hung from a hook or carried by hand.
