The VM Chair Making Project.

Posted by on Dec 6, 2014 in Blog | One Comment
Some time ago I was shown some pictures of a chair made by Vidar Malmsten back in the early 70’s. The chair has a minimalist elegance with a strong touch of Chippendale about it. Vidar Malmsten was a friend of James Krenov, a Swedish furniture maker and teacher who has an almost god like status amongst some makers. The chair is often made as a student project by students at krenov inspired colleges in the US.

Well, I thought, if the Americans can do it why not here in Ilkley, and set about researching the chair.
