Gerald Summers Makers of Simple Furniture
A Pair of Armchairs - Each Cut and Bent from a Single Sheet of Birch Ply
In 1932 Summers and his wife Majorie Amy Butcher started "Makers of Simple Furniture" and began to experiment with free-form designs and malleable materials. Summers specialised in airplane plywood which resulted in some of the most innovative designs of the period. This seminal work of 1933-34 took advantage of the wood's flexibility creating this seamless seat which is considered to be a Modernist Masterpiece.
