at tokyo design week 08, design group ‘mile’ from japan presented a chair design made from rubber and wood. the main frame of the chair is made from wood while strips of thick rubber are twisted and curved to form the arms and back support of the chair, all held together by metal hardware. the design provides an interesting combination of materials, using solid wood to contrast with the more malleable rubber.
