Cov Bodge at Designersblock 2010

September 16, 2010

Back in March 9 designers went to the forest. Bodging Milano took place in Clissets wood in Herefordshire in the workshop of Gudrun Leitz. Over 4 days using only hand tools, pole lathes, and traditional steam bending techniques, 9 unique pieces were created. We then exhibited the results at Designersblock in Milan to great acclaim. Quite a few people have told us that it was the best thing they saw in Milan this year.

Now the same group are taking it one step further. Dave Green, one of the bodgers runs a company called Sitting Firm a furniture manufacturers based in Coventry. Now Dave along with fellow bodgers Amos Marchant, Carl Clerkin, Chris Eckersley, Gareth Neal, Gitta Gschwendtner,Rory Dodd, Suzanne Barnes, and William Warren will be taking over the Sitting Firm factory for 3 days as well as camping in the grounds. Some will be making more refined versions of their Bodging Milano chair, others will be doing something completely new. These are the 1st pictures, expect more soon.
