Things Modenus Loves – The Jazz Chair by Sebastien Turrotte

Sebastian Turrotte managed to talk the world famous Ronnie Scotts Jazz Bar into commissioning him to make this chair. For no other reason than that, we should all know that he is a force to be reckoned with.

And when they asked him to make something which reflects jazz music with ‘freedom of the individual within a group context’ and ‘improvisations within a strict rhythmical structure’ he was either going to be totally flummoxed or produce something amazing. We met Isle of Wight (US readers – it’s just off Southern England and next door to the 1950′s) based Sebastian at the London New Designers show where he told us his story and his intention to make an even better Jazz Chair.

Sebastian already has a good portfolio of interesting pieces which show an impressive creativity and craftsmanship. In amongst it are some of the mood boards that inspired the Jazz Chair. I am sure he won’t mind if we share them with you.

There is no web site but if you want to know more you can always email him at slmturcotte@yahoo.co.uk

    I would absolutely love to know how long it took to form each of the panels in this chair, its not too often you see so many curves, especially on such tight radius’.

    Not sure how comfortable the head part will be, but saying that, given the length of time taken to create such a masterpiece it must be!
