Judge's comments:

The beautiful silhouette signifies a chair full of family knowledge, a deep appreciation of furniture making and commitment to the furniture business in New Zealand. The classical elegance and detail resolution of this piece is of the highest standard. The judges recognized the challenge of designing a contemporary, upholstered, timber chair and were impressed by its execution and integrity.
