The Leveller Chair and the Lady Leveller Chair were conceived from observations on pre-industrial sextants that sailors used to determine distance and location based on angular measurements taken from the Earth’s horizon. The sextants themselves were made of hand-formed metals and housed in leather pouches.
The forms of these occasional chairs are both delicate and severe at once and make for a sculptural statement inside any interior. The metal frames are hand-forged on industrial machinery and hammer-finished on an anvil. The details of each chair are then sculpted by Dylan Farrell himself, making each chair a unique fabrication. The seat is typically clad in hair-on-hide, color matched relative to a stitched-and-wrapped leather backrest. The Leveller and Lady Leveller are identical with exception to the arm; the lady has a soft curve with a more expressive hand-rest.
The Leveller is also offered as a barstool or counter stool.
