Folk

Folk is a mercurial, but modest family of chair, stool and table designed for Allermuir by PearsonLloyd. Folk is both timeless in its seemingly familiar design, and timely in its modest and ingenious flexibility.

A range of wood, plastic and metal finishes, different colours and upholstery options allow you to change Folk’s flavour so that it can appear like a range of different chairs that somehow sit together harmoniously in one space. It’s flat pack - no glue - assembly and minimised usage of sustainable materials make it a meaningful contribution to ward an over production.

It’s in depth research into these changes - in both the material and digital world - enables PearsonLloyd to create design solutions that are appropriate and relevant for manufacturers, brands and users. The studio is highly collaborative in its approach. It embraces the restrictions imposed by product type, function, material and process and delivers products that are beautiful, efficient and useful.

ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE

We don’t pay lip service to sustainability. We don’t do it because it’s fashionable. It’s something we genuinely care about. Sustainability is written in to everything that we do. It’s in our designs, our manufacturing and our delivery. Every one of our products is at least 99% recyclable with many being 100%.

In fact, we care so much about reducing our impact on the environment, that we even opened a new division of our business called Sustain™.
