Working in collaboration with London-based furniture designer Michael Sodeau, Carbon fiber brand Hypetex is set to launch a new lounge chair next month.
Entitled Halo, the lightweight lounge chair is the first piece of furniture to be produced entirely from carbon fiber composite, Hypetex.
Produced by applying high pressure and heat, Hypetexâ„¢ is a lightweight and resilient material that's used in the automotive and cycling industries. The material has been developed by engineers from Formula One, Hypetex is available in a wide range of colors and can be molded into complex shapes and forms.
Sitting on three legs, the graphic Halo chair features tapered supports that connect the huge circular back to the rear legs while a thin, wing-shaped seat gives the design a visual lightness. Michael Sodeau explains: "Hypetex has opened doors in terms of new design possibilities. Its strength, lightness and vibrant colour options make it an exciting new material for the design industry."
The design will be displayed at London-based design show, designjunction in September.
