The Manuka Throne

We have an amazing functional piece of art made by one of our artists, John, from the Manuka Forge, I've dubbed it the Manuka Throne.

Just sitting in the Manuka Throne is a transcending experience. Not only do you look like royalty, but the chair gives you a very real sensation of being connected to everything around you, and there's a good reason why - it was designed that way!

Notice the feet, how wide and spread out - this gives them a large surface area to absorb movement from the floor, and the back that reaches up and sweeps into the air - this gives the chair a bit of a tuning fork effect. Even very minute movements are absorbed through the feet and are translated into small vibrations that you feel through your back and hands. 

Come by, sit in this amazing work of engineering and art, close your eyes, relax, and feel your environment. It gives you the amazing sensation of almost having another sense.
