This sci-fi-looking chair – called Fabric Chair – is an investigation into the use of fabric as a structural material in furniture design. A special resin was developed to harden fabric placed on a rigid mold, which hardens the fabric in place to become structural while retaining its soft appearance. The design was part of eVolo Magazine’s 2015 VMODERN Furniture Design Competition, which recognizes innovative design. The first place-winning Fabric Chair was created by I-Ting Tsai, Xixi Zheng, Yiru Yun, and Somdatta Majumdar from the United Kingdom.
