Janus Chairs - Ryder Architecture 2009

Overview

Janus Chairs are three rotating seats located on a peninsula along the Lakeside Way on the north shore of Kielder Water. Taking their inspiration from the unfolding petals of a flower, the three chairs are made using a Glulam construction technique and backed with stainless steel. Each chair is a different size and each has a roof that extends over the occupant's head so that when the chairs are rotated towards each other they overlap to form a partial shelter. The chairs can be orientated by visitors as they wish; towards the sun, away from the wind or rain, or together as a social group. OS Map Ref.NY 665906.
