black mountain chair

When i was young, my dad, who studied architecture, had a book lying around the house from the 70's about furniture that could easily be dismantled and assembled. I spent a lot of my childhood either taking things apart or fixing things and i remember being inspired by that idea. After a long career in music i started building things again and the only space i could afford was the basement of the house i lived in. Along with leaking water and ducking under drain pipes to work down there, my only way of getting in and out of the place was a small 4'x3' hatch. So out of necessity i had to think about how to build things that could fit through that door or be assembled outside. 

Packs flat and requires no tools, screws or glue to be assembled. 

Black Mountain is named in honour of my grandfather, who i wish i had met. He started Black Mountain Collage in the 30’s.
