Contour Chair designed by David Colwell England 1967/8

A wonderful example of the exceptional innovation in design seen in the 1960’s. Designed by David Colwell in 1967, the unique shape of this chair was created by firing a pneumatic ram on a heated acrylic sheet. Made in England by the manufacturer William Jaycox this chair was never produced in large numbers. In smoky grey acrylic on a black nylon-coated steel frame, it is in extremely good condition.

A statement piece that would sit perfectly in a modernist collector’s home.

This design is held in the collection of London’s V & A Museum.

H60cm, Seat H 33cm, W66.3cm, D73cm

Each building at the property has its own character and use. The Chapel dates to 1903 and was originally constructed for the Salvation Army. With its enormous arched windows at either end of the lofty beamed and vaulted ceiling this remarkable space has a simplicity that enables everything presented within to breathe freely. Alongside this is another smaller chapel which was once part of the old cattle market.
