Bruce Hamilton

Glasgow School of Art Directors Room Chair

In 2003 Bruce Hamilton Furniture Makers received the commission to produce six new chairs for the Director’s Room at the Glasgow School of Art. The original chairs had been in daily use since 1904 and were showing the signs of wear and tear. This was the first time since the Art School opened that the original items of Mackintosh furniture had be replaced.

 I was given access to the original chairs to measure and make templates so that the new directors chairs I was making would be as good reproductions of the original suite as possible, when it came to the finishing of the new chairs they were treated to look aged so when place in the board room with the rest of the suite of furniture they did not stand out as new pieces.
