the double helix chairs

The fabric I designed for these chairs is my small tribute to Rosalind Franklin, the British chemist and x ray crystalographer who made a major contribution to the understanding of our DNA.

There is no doubt that Franklins experimental data was used by Crick and Watson to build the double helix model.

Tragically she died of cancer at the age of 37 – just four years before the Noble Prize was awarded to Crick and Watson for their discovery of the structure of DNA.


All my furniture is unique – I never repeat a design.


Vintage chairs upholstered in fabric designed by Lorraine Osborne. Cushion fabric designed by Lorraine Osborne. Both printed at The Glasgow School of Art.
