a monthly round-up of the world's best interiors and design stories
Part of Heal's ReDiscovers, Kay and Stemmer took inspiration for their Stride range from the Utility dining furniture designed by Christopher Heal in the 1950s.
The Stride dining table is made from a solid piece of American oak with softened corners and bull nose edging. The slender solid American oak legs taper elegantly up and are gun-stock-jointed into the underframe. A clear lacquer finish showcases the natural grain of the wood.
Also made from solid American oak, the Stride dining chair is upholstered in a Bute Melrose Jungle Green or Carbon Grey wool. The design of the chair is unique in that the arm frame sits at a purposely low height to functionally pull the chair towards the table.
Table/Dimensions: 90 x 200 x 74cm
Chair/Dimensions: 45 x 45 x 94cm
