In April 2014, Gareth and five other renowned furniture designers, Chris Eckersley, William Warren, Sarah Kay, Carl Clerkin and Koji Katsuragi were reunited after their original Bodging Project from 2012 in the famous Tottenham Court Road shop window of Heal’s for a week of creative exploration. In a race against time, using a range of offcuts from Ercol and Sitting Firm, they set about crafting objects of beauty and desire. Press and customers were then invited to vote for their favourite design, and Gareth was delighted to have won ! The beautiful Heal’s Chair that came from this experiment is a true testament to our process of making. As a collective, we always believed that pressure, competition and intuitive making could result in great outcomes. This time we feel it worked, with every component in either compression or tension as this simple leather slung chair stylishly slips into the contemporary world.
