Product Description

The DW 03 Chair is the third product designed by Scottish designer Derek Welsh for Phantom Hands.

As a woodworker, Derek’s designs are informed by his expertise in classical joineries and methods of construction. His minimal designs require a high level of craftsmanship to execute. The DW 03 chair is unusual in that it is a three legged chair; the seemingly dainty backrest of the chair belies its stability and robustness.

The DW 03 Chair is comfortable, sturdy and ideal for use as a Dining Chair or as a Desk Chair. Its compact size makes it a great fit for city apartments and offices.

The chair is currently available in high quality Burma Teak wood with Natural, Dark Stain and Black Finish options.

Product Options

We offer this product in a choice of four wood finishes: Natural Teak, Dark Stain and Black.

For the Natural Teak finish, the wood is sanded and finished with hard wax oil to bring out the natural, golden-brown colour of the teak.

For the Dark Stain finish, a coat of water-based, teak stain is applied to give the wood a darker teak shade, followed by a coat of sealer.

For the Black finish, the wood is sprayed with an eco-friendly, water-based paint that leaves the grains and patterns visible.
