jun aoki: 'thin beam' for tokyo fiber 09 senseware exhibition

‘thin beam’ by jun aokiarchitect jun aoki designed ‘thin beam’, an ultra long cantilever lighting fixture for the tokyo fiber 09 senseware exhibition held at the triennale design museum, milan. made from ‘torayca’ produced by toray industries the product brings out the characteristics of this material. carbon fiber provides strength under tension and is very light. stretching across the room, the lighting fixture illuminates more than enough space for five chairs side by side, even when the chairs are spread far apart.
