System-S Stool by Wayfarer Furniture

December 8th, 2013 by retail design blog

Leicester’s cultural quarter sees a new furniture company, Wayfarer Furniture, launch this month at the Makers’ Yard workshops on Rutland Street. Wayfarer Furniture’s first range will be completely manufactured in the city, making use of the industry-leading retail display fabricators. The reusable packaging will also be made in Leicester, stitched and screen-printed using local talent relating to the city’s historic textile industry.

The System-S range currently consists of a self-assembly stool available in four finishes: walnut, maple and combinations of the two. The stool requires no screws, Allen keys or nails and only requires five simple steps to assemble and disassemble when required for storage or transporting. The materials used are all chosen with sustainability in mind, with no plastic laminates or metal fixtures used.

Harris Chapman, founder of Wayfarer Furniture, says, “The inspiration behind the design of the System-S range came from moving furniture from place to place whilst at university and thinking it would be a lot easier if it could be easily disassembled back to being flat-packed. Since starting this project I’d always wanted to work with local firms in order to focus on creating an environmentally-friendly manufacturing process, which has turned out to be a complete dream; the attention to detail, quality of workmanship and understanding given to sustainability issues has really made the System-S range a quality product with integrity.”

In the near future the System-S range will be expanded to include a desk, shelving unit, and bench. All products will be sold with a reusable canvas bag.
