The gorgeous 1950s Jason chair designed by Carl Jacobs & Frank Guille for Kandya.

The Jason chair was designed by the Danish designer Carl Jacobs but was manufactured by Kandya, a British firm. This lightweight, stackable, chair has gently tapering splayed wooden legs that are typical of Danish design of the period. The seat and back of the chair are folded from a single sheet of flexible plywood that wraps around the chair and joins below the seat in an expressive, though functionless, jigsaw puzzle type connection. In America the Eames and Eero Saarinen were experimenting with moulding single-piece chair seats and backs, but it required far simpler technology to bend plywood to achieve the same effect, as with this chair. Principally designed for domestic use, the Jason chair was in continuous production for almost twenty years, with metal legs as an option. In 1952 three hundred were installed in the South Bank Restaurant on the site of the Festival of Britain. (V&A)

This is the all wood version.

In an overall very good condition with just a couple of small scuffs here and there to the frame and seat in keeping with its age but nothing noticable.

Smaller items (including quite a few of our chairs which can be dismantled for shipping) are shipped, fully insured and with tracking numbers, via our designated couriers or the Royal Mail. In most cases, a signature will be required upon delivery.

All items will normally be despatched within 2-6 working days and sooner in most cases although larger items that can be sent via courier may need longer to package.

Customised beer table sets can take up to 4 days to prepare especially during the busy spring and summer months so please allow up to 1 week for delivery.

In the UK we use a 1-2 day courier service. The service to Europe takes approximately 3-5 days and for elsewhere it is approximately 5-7 days.

Surcharges (approx £20) will be applicable for Northern Ireland, remote areas, Scottish Highlands and islands. As well as 'Out Of Area' surcharges for Europe for more remote locations.

Shipping rates are calculated according to size and weight and will be available when you place an item in the cart.

For large furniture (freight) items, we will provide a delivery quote, so the following are guidelines only.

We have several recommended third party delivery options. Please note that these are third party. We arrange the quote and once accepted by you, pass your details onto the driver who will then make contact with you to coordinate delivery times directly. You will need to pay the driver upon delivery. Insurance of all items passes to these delivery companies as soon as these items leave our premises. We will obviously be happy to assist you with any queries/issues you may have regarding delivery.

We have found that most of our customers are looking for the most competitive delivery rates available and so the services we recommend are economy options. With these, a certain amount of flexibility is required, as a driver will be making several deliveries per run, delivery times will usually be within business hours and these are one man services.

These rates are for delivery to a ground floor, they may help carry the item elsewhere but this is at their own discretion. Please note that as the driver works alone and mainly during business hours, someone will need to be in to take delivery and help lift larger items. If you have any alternative requirements, please let us know as this will involve alternative arrangements.

If you have more specific requirements/restrictions, we may need to arrange an alternative, higher level delivery option.

In general:

London and the Home Counties – delivery will be within one week.

The fee for this service is usually £50-60 (distance dependent) for most freight items (sofas, chests of drawers etc). London is a £50 flat fee.

For larger, heavier items (eg haberdashery units and shop counters) this rises to £60-£70 (London being £60).

A surcharge of £10 will be applied for delivery to any addresses within the Congestion Zone.

Rest of mainland UK (including most of Scotland and Wales) – delivery will be within 2-3 weeks.

Flat fee of £75 to mainland addresses, there maybe surcharges for remote areas, islands and highlands. Again, this is an economy service and is for delivery to a ground floor via a one man service. Items are delivered 7 days a week, depending on where you are on the driver’s run, so some flexibility is needed. Please advise if you have any other requirements as other arrangements will need to be made.

Scotland £105

Ireland / N. Ireland £117
