SONUS GUITAR CHAIR

PASSION DESERVES INSPIRATION

Sonus combines the benefits of a finely tuned bespoke chair with the aesthetic appeal of solid wood furniture.

Built to assist the player through the physical demands of practice and performance, the Sonus design is a direct compliment to the human body in a playing position. The carved seat and back promote an ergonomic, upright posture which both reinforces the lumbar curve of your lower back and sits below the shoulder blades.

With a height customized for you, Sonus chairs promote circulation by placing legs at a comfortable angle.

While built in a collaboration with guitarists, this chair will support any musician. The low round seat allows for full freedom of movement for your instrument, arms and elbows. Thick leather feet protect the floor and remain silent during recording. In addition, the ergonomic support grants your diaphragm the space necessary for full expression.

Sustainability

Sustainably managed regional forests provide the majority of our hardwoods with our Honduran mahogany being supplied directly from Honduras through an association with Madera Verde and Greenwood, non-profit organizations. Our regional hardwood may also come from urban harvest due to storm fall or other natural events, or even the occasional tree from property owned by one of our craftsmen.

FAQ's

How strong is the Sonus chair?

In armless chairs, stress concentrates where the seat and back connect. Our answer to that challenge is the pinwheel joint. Each part is mortised and tenoned to allow as much interlocking fiber as possible between the stressed members. Tests in our shop have demonstrated this joint’s phenomenal strength. In addition, the rear frame of the Sonus joins the carved back and seat with long tapered dovetails precision-fitted to lock tight just as the parts land in their final position. These hidden marvels of unique joinery allow not only for a very clean appearance, but an extremely strong bond between the parts.

What is the difference between a textured seat and a smooth one?

While some say the difference is only aesthetic, there are those who report that the textured seat gives a feeling akin to a slight cushion.

How long will it take for me to receive my Sonus chair?

Currently, the delivery time is five to six months from placement of your order.
