Above: Samuel Wilkinson talks to Dezeen about his Hatcham chair
The Hatcham chair was shown at this years London Design Festival as part of Decode London's celebration of its fifth year collaborating with emerging London designers.
Composed of only six smooth pieces, the design features details meant to expose its construction. Wilkinson has used sand-cast aluminium leg brackets, solid oak legs and an oak-veneered seat and back to create a modern design which he told Dezeen was "based on school chairs and inspired by steam engines."
The name Hatcham originates from an old east London casting foundry, originally called Hatcham Ironworks.
Cast lettering has been added on the inside of the leg brackets to illustrate the chairs' industrial influence.
