New Seating Collection by Tom Dixon for George Smith

British designer Tom Dixon has created a new seating collection to be produced by George Smith at its factory in Newcastle, England.

From Tom Dixon:

The collection celebrates the traditions of British upholstered furniture with each piece hand made by George Smith using long established techniques practiced for over 250 years. Skilled craftsmen, including generations of the same family, employ the use of traditional skills such as joinery, hand sewing and upholstery. These skills are kept alive through an apprenticeship scheme which ensures the knowledge and techniques are passed down from generation to generation supporting the British industry.

The construction of each piece uses many materials from renewable sources with frames made of wood from sustainable forests, and the main body fillings upholstered with natural ingredients including natural cotton, feather, and boar bristle.

The collection consists of five ranges, seen below are three examples. The full collection will be on display at the 2009 Salone del Mobile furniture show in Milan.
