These are low custom designed chairs for the Kernan Tea House that enable the sitter to have back support while still feeling close to the decking and putting the eye of the viewer at the level of the low window looking onto the large boulder.  The structural elements are CNC milled lapped wood, connected by bamboo to connect the chairs to the tea house bamboo wall and bamboo grove beyond.  The fabric material is a water-proof and permeable Chilewich fabric for outdoor durability.
