Sea Fever – The Spinnaker Chair

Can you imagine setting off for an adventure on the high seas?
The snap of the sail as it catches the wind…
The invigoration you feel as you inhale the salt air…
The movement under your feet as your vessel begins to run…

Norwegian designers from Scenario and Hødnebø have teamed up to create a unique chair. They wanted to blend that sense of freedom you get from sailing with a contemporary chair design.
The Spinnaker Chair was born.

A great part of the design is that they have upcycled sail cloth as part of its construction.
I love that visually they have captured the look of the spinnaker flying.

 

Sea Fever by John Masefield

I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull’s way and the whale’s way, where the wind’s like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.
