  • 1. How Big Is The Plonk Chair?
    The Plonk timber dining chair is a great size to sit comfortable through a delicious meal, and dessert! The seat is a generous 44cm wide and 46 cm deep with a seat height of 44cm to easily suit most dining tables. The backrest is 73cm high which sits approximately at the same height as most table tops. This helps to keep your dining area looking tidy and open as the backrests don’t clutter the view by sticking up too high.

    2. What makes the Plonk Chair unique?
    The Plonk is the first chair from designers Jonathan and Sophie Biet and celebrates simplicity. The focus for the design is around strength and exploring manufacturing techniques that can be done with perfect consistency entirely by the So Watt team in their Marrickville workshop. Just like most of the designs by So Watt, the plonk chair is offered in a great range of curated colours giving the chair a whole new personality depending on the finish you choose.

    3. What is the Plonk Chair Made of?
    The Plonk is a solid timber chair made from Tasmanian oak for the legs and birch ply for the seat, backrest and ribs. The two types of timber are also used on the matching Plonk Table and Plonk Benches to offer an Australian made timber dining suite collection with a modern minimalist mood. Because So Watt are all about plywood, the Plonk chair features the unique plywood dowel plugs handmade by So Watt on the front and rear rails where the supports are joined together.

    4. What Product Can I Pair With The Plonk Chair?
    The Plonk solid timber dining chair is intended to go alongside the range of plonk dining tables available in lots of sizes, but this is not the only thing you can pair this dining chair with! Our customers love to use the Plonk plywood chair with our plywood desk as a fun work from home space. It also looks great with the Archibald Writing Bureau and Rover Home Desk. The Plonk is available in lots of great colours making it a feature chair for cafes and restaurants.
