Close to a thousand pounds of cement bags were used to test the strength of these products. Form defined by function is the phrase of the day for this stool. They have found a home at a student housing project in Savannah GA called One West Victory. They hold your body above the ground with the most light weight structure, heirloom quality as a result of being made of solid walnut, perched up, high above the rest, being perfectly at rest is what this stool can do for you.
sub-series one (tables and a chair)
knuckle joint as sculptural structure
New Breed has been developing a complete line of furniture, including chairs, stools, benches, side tables, coffee tables, dining tables, conference tables, desks, dressers, credenzas, consoles, shelving systems and more all based on one innovation, the PetalPly knuckle joint. Structural components such as legs, arms, and stretchers are shaped to have a smaller half round end that then tappers out into a larger half round with a doughnut like hole. When combined and rotated around a structural dowel/tenon, the effect is amazingly strong while proving to be eye catching. These shapes resemble the petal of a flower, and the layered glued components with alternating grain act like a muscular alpha plywood, thus “PetalPly”.
heirloom as a brand
With a woodworkers conviction, the aim of New Breed is to be known for more than quality, but also building products built to last, and when we say last, we mean for generations. By working with mostly all solid wood in all our products, and going against the trend toward the phony veneer technologies, using all solid wood joinery, we build into each product the added value of heirloom longevity. In theory, our furniture, unless destroyed by natural disaster, can be repaired and refinished endlessly, made like new for hundreds of years in the future. Add to that, our designs are also timeless, and you get furniture future grandchildren will fight over.
