Charlotte and Peter Fiell

£30.00

Samuel Chan is a multi-award-winning British designer and maker who crafts exquisitely made wooden furniture that uniquely synthesizes Eastern aesthetics with Western design ideals. Embodying a philosophy of design purity and craft principles, Chan’s work displays exceptional formal and functional integrity, and can be held up as exemplary of best practice design.

This richly illustrated publication is the first comprehensive survey of Chan’s work and spans over twenty-five years of creative and entrepreneurial endeavour while explaining his singular approach to design and manufacture.
