The first version of the chair was developed as a university project, receiving the New Designers Peter Walker Award for innovation in furniture design in 2007. The following year it was put into production with Habitat.
The main feature of the chair is the ‘epaulette en passant’ detail – a strap and button which attaches the cushion to the frame.
Named Jed after Jedburgh, where the wood was sourced when creating the first prototypes, the steam-bent frame was initially produced in green ash, with the production version later made in oak.
