Sketch Series: Narin by David Irwin

At this years Design Guild Mark, Design Insider caught up with a few of the award winning designers to find out a little more about the the inspiration behind products that had been honour with Guild Mark this year.

Our Sketch series starts with a video interview with British Industrial Designer David Irwin who created the Narin, a space saving wooden folding chair for Case Furniture.

Inspired by the constantly adapting nature of modern workspaces the lightweight Narin folding chair is both easy to collapse and move around, and can be stored in condensed stacks that occupy minimal space. The solid wood frame is robust enough for use in meeting, conference and waiting rooms.


The collapsible element is a functional addition to an already beautiful chair as opposed to compromising these factors in order to fold it.
