Volta High Chair

Design

Studio RIES


Dowel Jones , Australia

From Buenos Aires to Melbourne comes Volta, a collaboration between Argentinian studio RIES and Australian design brand Dowel Jones.

The Volta Collection is a new approach to seating from Dowel Jones. With a carved solid timber backrest that embraces the body and circular seat with the option of upholstery — the Volta High Chair explores the possibility of a mixed-material chair.

Brass details are a contrast against the tubular frame and solid timber, left uncoated to patina naturally over time.

MATERIALS
