Library Steps

Mark V

James Ryan's minimal design, inspired by the branches of a tree, is robust, stable, light and portable. Joining the curved laminated components called for highly skilled hand-work with gouges, chisels and spoke-shaves. We have scrubbed the oak to give more texture and a natural feel. Made by Andy Cunningham and Chris Wallis. more info
