Charles Rennie Mackintosh reinvented the Art Nouveau Movement with his "Spook School" designs. This armchair, named the "Dug Out" chair for the tearoom that it was designed for, is unmistakably a Mackintosh design. The combination of his trademark geometric patterns and smooth flowing lines is brought to reality in what could be one of his most comfortable chairs now in production.
While no existing examples of the "Dug Out" chair have ever been located, the details of this chair can be found in the architectural drawings of the Dug Out Tearoom. This, and the complete furnishings of the tearoom, can be seen in watercolor painting (1917) that remains in the collection of Glasgow University. The "Dug Out" chair was also believed to be included in the furniture designed for the home of W. Basset Lowke, along with such pieces as the Gate Leg Table, and the Mackintosh Hutch.
