These chairs, dubbed "Chair Agricole", I designed and built for the restaurant Bar Agricole, which opened in August of 2010. The restaurant is located at 11th and Folsom (http://www.baragricole.com/). The owner, Thad Vogler, is a cocktail specialist known for creating the bar and drink menus at The Slanted Door, Beretta, the Presidio Social Club, Coco 500 and Jardiniere.
Vogler's own restaurant, featuring a chef from Zuni Cafe, emphasizes wine and spirits. International glass sculptor, Nikolas Weinstein, has created a three-part hanging glass installation for the main dining room. The walls are made of reclaimed white oak from old whiskey barrels, as are the chairs built from cabernet-stained white oak barrels previously owned by Firestone Vineyard in Napa Valley.
