Pesuta

Story

Our chair draws inspiration from a shipwreck off the coast of Haida Gwaii, on the west-coast of British Columbia. The Pesuta was a 264 foot log barge wrecked in a winter storm in 1928. In the decades since, the wreck has become a popular attraction at the midpoint of a beautiful and lengthy hike. After walking along the trail for 5 km, you are rewarded with a view of this unintentional sculpture, eroded by waves and patinated by the sun. Much like the shipwreck, Pesuta is a destination point. Its solid, weathered planks can be exposed to the elements and remain timeless.

Every hand-built Pesuta chair is comprised of sharp, angular forms; inspired by the composition of the ship’s wooden members, jutting out from their final resting place in the sand. An iconic piece of Pacific Northwest Design that captures the beauty of nature’s transformative abilities.

Scorching is an ancient wood preserving technique. In our studio we burn the surface of the wood, then hand-brush the charcoal to raise the grain. Next, we add a black tint to the scorched wood to even out the tones and finally apply a top coat of clear catalyzed varnish finish to seal the wood. The underlying material is red oak, which is a heavy, strong hardwood prized for its straight grain and medium-coarse texture.
