Spotted on Designboom, this monobloc stackable chair by Werner Aisslinger features a refined modern form. The aptly-named ‘hemp chair’ is made from natural fibers like hemp that have been molded under heat with a special non-toxic, eco-friendly glue. Essentially a single, thin sheet of composite material, the chair is surprisingly lightweight, strong, and features delicate curves which give it an inimitable visual complexity. Aisslinger’s unique process allows for the low-cost mass production of each piece, but not at the cost of the environment.
