carbon fibre chairs by laisr


laisr is a design studio based in basel, switzerland. they specialize in producing furniture using a very non-traditional material, carbon fibre. this super strong and ultra light material is many used for engineering purposes, but laisr has applied it to three chairs in their product line. the reason they use the material is because of its super strength. while most don’t like to think of carbon fibre as a green material, laisr believes that because its durability makes it last so long, the required energy to manufacture it is justified. they also took the design of the chairs into consideration, creating sleek and, what they believe, to be timeless forms. carbon fibre chairs by laisr ‘’

    so what? ok, it’s nice thing made of expensive carbon. you can’t speak about “green” product because all proceses are poisonous and consumes a lot of energy. what is an idea?
    carbon in latest boeings and airbuses allows to save up to 30% fuel. in sport goods carbon makes them withstand loads more efectively and asist human body better.
    what is an idea? to be pioneers in chair technology? can’t cach the idea.
