Janus Chairs, Kielder Water & Forest Park, Northumberland by Ryder Architecture

Janus Chairs were created as one of six sculptural shelters at Kielder Water & Forest Park, northern Europe’s largest man-made lake and England’s largest forest

Made from laminated Douglas fir from the Scottish borders, with polished stainless-steel backs, the three one-piece chairs – approximately 3m high and 1m wide – can be rotated or moved around.

Facing inward, they are the closed bud of a flower; rotated outwards they come into full bloom. On approach, and when seen from other positions around the lake, they appear as one sculpture, yet they provide a constantly changing composition depending on their relative positioning.
Cost: £52,000
