Y BAR STOOL
Our beautiful Y BAR STOOL is available in 2 versions – with a back, and without a back and in 2 woods – Scottish oak and Scottish ash.
Part of our Y Collection, nominated for The Woods Awards BEST BESPOKE FURNITURE DESIGN in 2012.
Using wood well, is all about understanding grain direction and the constant movement with changing humidity. In the Y Collection these properties are used to best advantage. The sliced and steam-bent Y, is an ingenious leg component, is brought through the seat and wedged. The component is incredibly strong as the wood fibres remain intact, with the weight of a seated person supported by the wood in its strongest grain direction – which is very strong – pound for pound wood is stronger than steel. It also creates a lovely end-grain detail on the surface of the seat. Y BAR STOOL combines a traditional wedged joint, with the ancient art of steam-bending and the latest cutting technology (which allows a perfectly clean slice).
In the ‘with-back-version’ the Y component is longer to also support the steam-bent curved back-rest. The end of the component is rounded off and brought through the back-rest and wedged. Again a lovely end-grain detail is created. The cut ends of the back-rest also have attractive end-grain. Wood looks different when looking into the end of the fibre bundle compared to looking at the side of the fibre.
Our Scottish wood has interesting rich colour and characterful grain patterns, and very hard wearing, with our hand oiled finish.
Dimensions: seat diameter is 38 cm and standard seat height is 70 cm. Height with back-rest is 94 cm. Height can be customised.
