The Best Seat in the House The Sitting Spiritually Olympic Seat
Sitting Spiritually is delighted to announce that their award winning Kyokusen Swing Seat is now in situ in the Olympic Park Gardens in time for the start of the 2012 Games.
In 2009, the RHS launched The Great British Garden Competition to recruit two amateur garden designers, and to celebrate the nation’s passion for gardening. The new garden sits within the Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, offering great views over the Olympic Stadium.
Out of 112 entries the winners were: Rachel Read in the adult section and Hannah Clegg in the junior section. The two designers worked with the Olympic Delivery Authority Team to realise their designs for the garden.
And one of their requests was a personalised swing seat from Sitting Spiritually so that visitors could enjoy the garden and the views. The designers had previously tried out the handcrafted swing seats at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.
Martin Young, eco carpenter and founder of Sitting Spiritually, designed the seat – a Three Seat Kyokusen Frame with Curve Back, complete with inscription “Rachel & Hannah”.
The Kyokusen (Japanese for “Curves in the Air”) Frame is Martin’s signature, award-winning design, handcrafted from FSC Certified English Oak, which is sourced locally, close to his workshop in Dorset. The frame mirrors the bough of the tree from which it was cut.
Olympic Park Seat, Three Seat Kyokusen Frame with Curve Back and Personalised Inscription, from £3,949.00
The seat itself is positioned at a 105 degree angle, designed specifically to mould into your back for added comfort. The springs allow for a gently swinging motion too.
The Kyokusen Swing Seat is available as a two, three or four seater, with a variety of seat back options. For something extra special, you can also include a personalised message or inscription, like Rachel and Hannah’s seat.
Prices start from £3,599.00 from Sitting Spiritually.
