This super-modern chair from French designers Studio Aparte makes the most of its materials. Made from a composite of materials including ramie – a highly durable substance made from nettles – the chair is made to be strong and light.
The design industry is just starting to get to grips with the opportunities presented by the use of composite materials. Studio Aparte were more than aware of the ecological factors involved with using non natural composites, which influenced their decision to use the mostly plant based material for their chair.
