Matthew Strong’s Carbon Fiber Eames Sofa is the outcome of in depth study at the archives at The Henry Ford Museum, Cranbrook, and MoMA.
The sofa’s kind is based mostly on a series of prototypes at the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan of an extruded fiberglass shell armchair that was currently being created sometime in the late 1950′s. Each iteration of the design and style was thicker than the final in order to strengthen it ample to hold a number of sitters. Nonetheless, the final iteration, at a total 3/4-inch thick, was also hefty to move effortlessly.
“The Carbon Fiber Eames Sofa imagines the sofa reborn using the most present day components and the most standard methods.” says Powerful. “Woven utilizing a classic woven caning pattern out of 12k carbon fiber tow, it weighs in at single digits, the weaving pattern adds substantial power to the style and assists with cross-bond adhesion.”
“It’s transparency lays bare its personal construction methodology, and allows visual accessibility to every single part of the base, giving it an aesthetic coherence that feels each uncanny and curiously organic.”
