After a seven month search, Southern Oregon University decided today to go with a custom chair designed and manufactured by Eustis Chair for their library renovation project. After rejecting off-the-shelf chairs from Eustis and from several other manufacturers, the SOU selection committee, working with Portland, Oregon architects SRG Partnership, developed a design concept that led to the “Oregon Chair”, pictured at right.
The clean lines and elegant comfort of this chair would not have been possible without our patented Eustis Joint®, a system using concealed steel rods and space-age epoxies to create a joint that is stronger than the hardwood itself.
Contract discussions are currently underway for the purchase of 550 of this new custom chair, to be delivered in four phases between October of this year and January of 2005
