The Workstead Sling Collection combines the gesture of sculptural slings with the solidity of articulated wooden frames. Constructed of turned wooden posts and pegs, the wooden frames are an elemental take on campaign-style furniture, while the sling is a complex and comfortable form.

The details are spare but refined in their proportions, and the frame gathers it’s weight from a series of repeated and expressed connections. The diameter of the wooden dowels and their capabilities was closely studied to achieve a balance of form and function. To develop the sling, a series of patterns were made to create an oblique contrast to the structure of the rectilinear frame. Trapezoidal in shape, the seat and back taper to create the arc of a reclined three dimensional form.

The Sling Chair combines the gesture of a sculptural sling with the solidity of an articulated wooden frame. Constructed of turned wooden posts and pegs, the chair frame is an elemental take on campaign-style furniture, while the sling is a complex and comfortable form.
The Sling Ottoman is the perfect companion to the Sling Chair. Constructed of turned wooden posts and pegs, with an integral sling, it is an elemental take on campaign-style furniture. Used alone, the Ottoman can double as a freestanding stool.
