Urban Fisherman

lightweight flat-pack chair


Handmade. Comfortable. Lightweight.

Made from locally sourced and selected invasive timber (Wattle & Gum) and assembled by hand using local labour, the Urban Fisherman is a portable and lightweight flat pack chair suited for both external and internal use.

The Urban Fisherman, designed by Richard Stratford, draws inspiration from a chair originally seen used by local fisherman on the banks of Lake Kariba. Through design innovation the chair has been turned into a portable and lightweight flat-pack product which offers back support and a unique forward rocking motion which varies the sitting position – perfect for stoking the fire or turning some lovely boerewors on the braai.

The chairs close proximity to the ground also ensures that your favorite delicious cold (or hot) beverage always remains within arms reach.
