Kiyomi Suzuki’s carbon fibre chair is incredibly light – and strong.
Kiyomi Suzuki is a bright young talent who is starting her design career full of promise with a chair that you can lift with a finger – for 2.
Suzuki, who previously worked for Atelier Jean Nouvel in Paris and is now chief designer at Ishimaru Co., Ltd., has constructed a chair out of 100 per cent woven carbon fibre, which is 10 times stronger than steel. And thanks to the innate qualities of the material, the chair weighs a mere 960g.
The designer says she was inspired by “an image of drifting leaves in the gentle breeze and a silhouette of a curved stem of a Calla lily”.
The Cherche Midi is available in Singapore at Kokuyo.
