Concept

Lightweight, strong and environmentally friendly, Hemp Chair is the first stackable single-shell small armchair devised and designed for the use of a new industrial material based on natural fibres. A sheet, with over 75% of its composition made up of hemp, is heat-formed via a production process with low environmental impact borrowed from the car-making industry. This technique ensures extreme ease of modelling which enables the softness of the shapes to be exaggerated to such an extent that they achieve an almost 3D effect. The Hemp Chair project is backed by the German chemicals company BASF and with its gemstone-shaped structure represents a new approach to this complex type of seat.
