New Shell, Who Dis? Introducing the Full Hurdle Collection

by Andrea Reynolds

The iconic Half Hurdle collection gets a new look with the help of a molded plywood shell.

With a new shell and a new look, this collection has been dubbed the Full Hurdle collection. Designed by Australian duo Dowel Jones, the Full Hurdle collection is made of a chair, counter stool, and barstool. The collection boasts the same unique steel frame as the Half Hurdle collection but with the added comfort and support of a molded plywood shell. Plus, the shell can be upholstered for a completely different look and feel.

Signature to the Dowel Jones style, the Full Hurdle collection has a minimal and playful aesthetic, only the shell provides a bit more versatility in application and style in comparison to its Half Hurdle counterpart. 

The simple silhouette allows Full Hurdle to be placed in a myriad of commercial spaces like universities, cafeterias, and offices. However, this collection feels most at home modern dining spaces like fast casual restaurants and cafes.

And because it’s made in our Grand Rapids Chair factory, you can quickly customize you Full Hurdle by swapping the stain, adding a custom powder coat, or upholstering the shell with a favorite fabric. Like our other mixed material chairs, the Full Hurdle collection comes standard with 16 wood stains and up to 29 powder coats. The collection has been tested to BIFMA standards.

The Full Hurdle collection is available to order and has a 4-6 week lead time. To see more of the Full Hurdle collection, check out our Spring/Summer Look Book. Want the real deal?
