Creating History

We are extremely excited to announce Wallpaper* Handmade III at Brioni unveiled the History Chair at Salone Internazionale del Mobile, Milan.

The History Chair is a collaboration between Cathal Loughnane (Creative Director of Design Partners), Peter Sheehan, and W/Workshop. A combination of the best in Irish design and craftsmanship.

History Chair

The History Chair is a unique piece born out of a long standing working relationship between two designers – Cathal Loughnane and Peter Sheehan – and an amazing collaboration with crafts people such as Connolly & Company initiated by Joseph Walsh.


The designer’s sensitivity to form and silhouette has been captured first by hand and eye in making the first prototypes, then digitally to aid the making of every component, and finally by hand & eye again as the final assembled piece is crafted and finished.
