    With a sturdy oak school chair from the 1950s in mind, Sanderson takes us back to his childhood and designs the memento chair. He recalls how he repeatedly balanced on the hind legs of that exact chair, until he fell down on the floor, distracted by what was going on in the world
    outside the classroom.

    Nowadays everything needs to be better, slicker and improved, this gets on Jesse’s ner ves. His longing for simplicity derives from Calvinistic times of frugality, thrift and perseverance. Nostalgia enables him to take a step back in our ‘fast forward’ world. By applying traditional craftsmanship and expressing his personal view, Sanderson designs intelligent yet simple hearted objects.
