Derek McLeod

Derek McLeod Design creates furniture and objects for people who like to live with quality.  The pieces can be described as archetypal, comfortable and usable – things which make life better by looking and performing well.  Chasing the ideal is a phrase which describes Derek's work, striving for the best version of a thing while understanding that the idea of best is always changing.

(Material: Solid walnut)

The Sum Chair is a combination of structure and surface, frame and seat, line and curve, a visualization of the essential role of furniture – to hold a person off the ground and to do so in a comfortable manner.  The Sum Chair is meant to support everyday life, acting as a calm addition to a café, office or home.  It is a delicate and slim chair which provides a quiet space for all of the living that takes place while seated.
