Carbon Balloon Chair

Dutch designer Marcel Wanders is known for using seemingly fragile materials in sturdy furniture construction, and his new Carbon Balloon Chair is no exception. The chair seems poised to float away, weighing less than two pounds and made from long balloons filled with compressed air, wrapped in carbon fiber strips, and hardened with epoxy resin, writes Dezeen. Proof that it will remain grounded—and in one piece? Wanders’ previous works including the celebrated 1996 Knotted Chair, which comprises aramid and carbon fibers knotted into the shape of a chair and hardened with epoxy resin.
