Waxed Canvas & White Ash Travel Chair (Slate)
This foldable, portable chair is made from white ash wood treated with all-weather Danish oil, a mixture of varnish and oil that gives treated wood a water-resistant surface. The waxed cotton fabric is fastened onto the chair with stainless steel hardware. The canvas chair back is designed to be high so that, depending your height, you can rest your neck or head upon it during a music festival or civic parade. The chair has been tested to hold up to 300 pounds, so everyone can have a seat.
Use & Care
To assemble, take the shorter, all wood, chair piece and slide its two protruding legs between the two wooden rungs below the canvas chair back. Store the chair flat by nesting the seat into the chair back.
Production & Design
Founder Alan Davis was unimpressed with the plastic, poorly made options available in the portable chair market. The straw, or chair, that broke the camel’s back was when one of these inadequate models gave out on him in the middle of a six-day camping trip in Idaho. That was the moment he decided to remedy the situation by manufacturing his own chairs.
Once he created the prototypes and designs, he put them to the test by taking the chairs with him and his friends on rugged white water rafting trips. On these trips, the chairs would be subjected to waterlogging, heavy beatings and many seatings. Alan is proud to say that his chairs weathered through it all and made it out in one piece.
The chairs are made with white ash wood, known for its hardness and strength. To further amplify the usability of the chair, the wood is treated with Danish oil, which is a mixture of about one part varnish to 2 parts oil. The Danish oil gives the chairs a hard-wearing, waterproof finish. A waxed cotton canvas back is secured onto the wood with rustproof stainless steel hardware, providing further weatherproof features.
