Willow Hall Chair | Mackintosh
Willow Hall Chair | Ebonized Oak | "Carved Lattice-Back" | Charles Rennie Mackintosh Design |
The reproduction was made after tracing the Original Piece(originally 1904), the property of the Glasgow School of Art.
Macintosh designed this for the "Willows Tearoom ground-floor," particularly to function as the manager's chair. The back, dropping like a "shawl" around the seat, defines and encloses a self-contained space in relation to the surrounding space, while establishing a "choice-level" in the constant status of the other chairs in the room.
