AHEC designs for charity

EIGHT functional seating installations, which were made using sustainable American hardwoods and fabrics, were the highlight of the Design Dine Donate charity event recently held in Dubai, UAE.

The chairs and seats were made as part of a project that was a collaboration between the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC), the leading international trade association for the American hardwood industry, and Seekers Furnishing, a bespoke joinery practice in Dubai. The seating installations used American tulipwood, red oak, ash and black walnut and also incorporated sustainable fabrics from Warwick Australia.

They were auctioned off with the proceeds benefiting Surge, a global non-profit organisation that brings life-sustaining water to those most in need, while increasing awareness of the global crisis.
