2019 GOOD DESIGN™ Award Cio Ladderback Side Chair

$ 2,200
  • Description
    Description: Cio™ (pronounced “chee-o”) displays our innovation in form
    and materials. A seasoned innovator, Brian is the first to integrate linen composite into wooden furniture elements to enhance a structural matrix. This three-thousand-year old technology which protected Alexander the Great’s soldiers from spears now provides a green alternative to carbon fiber in many manufacturing applications
    including jet interiors, car and motorcycle bodies, and even boats and skis. Brian unites this linen composite and hardwood in the Cio™’s seat to increase strength and flexibility. Using this new sustainable material allowed Brian to create a wooden chair which sits as comfortably as an upholstered
    chair while reducing the weight significantly. For a lighter frame and reduced mass, Brian strengthened the traditional mortise and tenon joint which allowed him to remove the busyness of a typical ladderback undercarriage, thus opening it up for a contemporary look. The chair now easily moves around a dining table, and elegantly slides under a sitter as one eases into position at dinner. The dining chair weighs a mere 8.5 pounds. Along with using the linen composite, Brian Boggs works with regional
    vendors to source sustainably harvested high quality logs to create all of his tables and chairs, including Cio™.The collection includes a dining chair, arm chair and rocker.

    Designed by Brian Boggs Proudly handmade in Asheville, North Carolina, USA

    Construction Details: The Cio™ seat is constructed using a bent plywood formed by using our shop sawn veneers layered with a linen composite (the green alternative to carbon fiber and fiberglass). Steam bending creates the curves of the back, providing lumbar support. The joinery uses tapered double tenons and mortises to create super strong joints. Thick leather applied to the feet and runners protects the floor.
