The Plumber's Chair is a copper lounge chair designed to elevate functional components into an aesthetically pleasing piece of furniture. Drawing inspiration from the rich tradition and craftsmanship of the plumbing industry. The Plumber's Chair serves as a tribute to both the time-honoured skills passed down through generations and the innovative spirit driving modern advancements.The chair reflects my family heritage, due to both my Dad and Grandad working as plumbers. The Plumber's Chair not only highlights the intrinsic beauty of copper pipe, but also celebrates the intricate fittings and connections that form the backbone of any plumbing system. Each joint and intersection is carefully crafted, showing the skill and precision found in traditional plumbing, which is increasingly rare in today's tech-driven world. The Plumber's Chair stands as a symbol of the enduring legacy of craftsmanship in the plumbing industry, a timeless piece that pays homage to traditional techniques, whilst infusing a modern flair.
