The Supa chair is made of parts that are independent. The wood framed, leather cord woven back, the solid seat as well as the turned legs, all have different design and crafting approaches, are all made separately and only assembled after complete fabrication, using basic bolts and inset nuts. Optional arm rest are also post fitted in the same way.
This not only creates an eclectic chair that is approached with an improvisational with independent parts, as is often necessary in the culture of making in Africa, but it also allows for a robust chair that can be shipped flat pack in a box.
The groves on the back and subtle texturing on the legs further emphasize the strong craft attitude of the chair.
