The recent piece of news in the chair design industry is connected with a British designer Michael Young. His Less Than Five carbon fibre chair for US-based furniture company Coalesse is launching after two years of development.
The chair is named for the fact that its weight is less than five pounds in order to be easily moved and stacked.
The chair was firstly debuted during Milan design week in 2014. Manufactured as a single piece, it has has a thin profile and curving back with angled arm supports and legs and is – removing the need for joints and fixings.
“The chair’s structure and form were developed as a result of working with a factory that is known for exceptional high performance bicycles,” Michael Young says. “This technology is ideal for the development of an exceedingly lightweight stacking chair.”
“We wanted to design a carbon fiber chair that is truly functional and ergonomic,” he added.
The LessThanFive chair is available in six standard colours and finishes, including matte blue, red fade, light and dark fades, copper gloss, and carbon weave. however, there may be requested additional colours and logos. Briefly speaking, LessThanFive is the first time Coalesse has made a product with carbon fibre, which is still not widely used in the furniture industry.
As you know, Coalesse is a boutique division of the American office furniture company Steelcase that specializes in workplace furnishings that also can be used at home.
