Bio

Studio Tim Somers is a furniture workshop that focuses on the creation of unique and handmade pieces. The projects are a combination of functionality and artistic insights within the craft of woodworking. All of the projects are handmade with great attention to precision and passion, resulting in a durable end result. The production is divided with a fixed collection and assignments on demand. The projects can range from furniture to fixed objects within a space.

Objects

Stool TABLE

STOOL, 2021
American Walnut and Cherry (may vary)
45 cm x 20 cm x 45 cm (may vary)

Since it is made with what is available in the workshop, each stool is unique in terms of dimensions and types of wood. In the production of the furniture, different traditional woodworking methods are combined. On the seat is a gouged surface and a dovetail joint connects the seat to one of the legs. The wood is left in its original state as much as possible. In this way, the created piece of furniture are as natural and organic as possible. 

Chair C¹

Chair
American Walnut
65 cm x 45 cm x 75 cm

In the design of this chair, Tim has chosen to place the backrest slightly off-centre and to slide the seat more to the front, away from the back. With these small but subtle interventions, entirely new for a chair, he creates a more comfortable sitting position for the user, who can also easily place his arm on the backrest. The chair is only assembled with wood joints, which makes the chair more of a whole.

ONE LINE CHAIR

One Line Chair is a chair collection where we have tried to give the material (steel) a minimal, yet robust look.
To preserve the material and unity of the chair, we chose to sand one brutally and make the other one completely black.
In the 'Sanded' model we maintain the simplicity and coolness of the steel, while in the 'All Black' model we accentuate the contours of the chair.

The name 'One Line Chair' originated from one particular point of view that is taken when looking at the chair, the backrest and the seat become one line
