Narin Folding Chair

Inspired by the constantly adapting nature of modern workshops the lightweight Narin folding chair is both easy to collapse and move around, and can be stored in condensed stacks that occupy minimal space. The solid wood frame is robust enough for use in meeting, conference and waiting rooms.

David Irwin’s reimagining of the wooden folding chair gives a modern update to a concept that dates back to the ancient worlds, imbuing it with a resounding sense of quality and aesthetic appeal.

The elegant design features a smooth sweeping transition from the turned legs into the formed backrest, which also doubles as the mount for the pivot from where the back leg rotates. The seat and back are formed from layered birch ply with a clear lacquer oak veneer and brass fixings. The fixings contained on the underside of the chair slide along the grooves within the back legs to create a graceful silhouette with clean flowing lines, which looks as good folded away for storage as it does when open and in use.

“While practical, traditional folding chairs can be pretty boring. Designer David Irwin took a look at the design and gave it a beautiful, modern update.” Design Milk

The Narin Folding Chair was awarded the Design Guild Mark award in 2017.

Care notes for the Narin Chair

  • Use a dampened, soft, non-abrasive, lint-free colourless cloth to wipe the entire surface of your wood, moving in the direction of the grain.
  • Dry the wood using a second non-abrasive cloth. Remember to wipe in the direction of the wood grain.
  • You do not need to polish the wood as part of your regular maintenance, as we finish our products with a matte, non-yellowing clear polyurethane lacquer for its natural appearance and durability.
  • Never use wax-based polish or ammonia-based cleaning products on your wood.

Wood appearance

We supply high-quality furniture grade wood. This may vary for grain, colour, knots and other markings. We do our best to select and match as appropriate but we cannot accept returns on the basis of natural variations. Any special requirements for colour, matching, etc. must be provided in writing.

Wood warpage, shrinkage, and dimensional changes

Wood is an active material, in that it is known to have dimensional changes depending upon moisture, temperature, humidity etc.

We purchase and supply furniture grade 1 wood which has been dried to correct moisture content but sometimes warpage, shrinkage etc, can still occur, especially when the furniture is shipped to drier climates from where it was made. We will accept returns if the timber was not appropriately dried but we cannot accept returns that stem from climactic differences. Should movement occur in the wood addressing issues of temperature and moisture usually resolves the issue.

David Irwin

David Irwin is a British Industrial Design Studio driven by a desire to assign purpose to both traditional and contemporary manufacturing processes.

David has always had a curiosity for how things are made.

Originally from Northern Ireland, where he got his first taste of wood working in his father’s amateur workshop, David was drawn to the north of England by Northumbria University’s reputation for hands-on applied teaching and a holistic approach to the business of three-dimensional design.

In 2007 David’s final year project, a steam-bent timber frame chair, was awarded the New Designers Peter Walker Award for innovation in furniture design.

The Jed chair gave a contemporary twist to the traditional aesthetic of a lounge chair by utilising the inherent properties of timber through steam bending and natural soap flakes as a finish, to create very few environmental disadvantages.

The chair also caught the eye of Bethan Gray, then Design Director at Habitat, who thought it would work well within the Habitat collection, giving David his first taste of the manufacture and retail process.
