Hugh Haskell wrote a book on Chapman and I am sure there was a chapter about him and his love of furniture. 

Must admit, I tend to view these things in a rather different way: Do you like it? Is it worth the money to you as a chair? If yes and yes, buy it. If there is a "No" in there somewhere then

That was lotus engineering and may have been to with the connections to boat building

@pete Hi, Thanks for the information, I have seen something a bit special but was trying to find a price point. It is a prototype for the furniture  from the 80's.

Chapman and Ron Hickman worked together on furniture design and subsequently fell out over the workmate design which Chapman c!aimed was  designed on his drawing boards in his time

Never knew about Lotus furniture, interesting.  Are there any photos / sketches of the pieces?

I don't have a picture but it's supposedly a one of chair. I have seen it and it looks the real deal. I was thinking of getting it but it's not cheap.

If yes and yes, buy it. If there is a "No" in there somewhere then don't.

Am definitely interested to see what it's like. Don't post up till you've bought it though - you may find some competition
