Heal’s, the renowned British furniture store have been successfully hosting a Bodging Project that brings together makers and designers for almost a decade. In 2014, Gareth Neal and five furniture designers (Chris Eckersley, William Warren, Sarah Kay, Carl Clerkin and Koji Katsuragi) joined forces in the Tottenham Court Road shop window of Heal’s for a week of creative exploration. In a race against time, and each other, using a range of offcuts from Ercol and Sitting Firm, we set about crafting beautiful objects. Press and customers were invited to vote for their favourite design and we are pleased to have won! Out of this collaborative workshop environment came the beautifully crafted Ease Chair, who’s simple lines and stylish slung leather back are a great addition to the contemporary furniture world.
