1. The Gaudi Chair with Small Ducktail like Backrest

The Gaudi Chair is a simple and minimalist chair design with a funny duck-tail like backrest created by Studio Geenen. The modern chair has a structure of glass-filled Nylon covered by a shell of carbon fiber. In the designer’s words, “The shape of the chair as defined in the same way that Antoni Gaudi designed the structure of his churches; by making a model out of hanging chains, and so letting gravity determine the strongest shape for taking forces.” And to create the structure of the rib of the chair the designer combined the chain-models with a software script. High-end materials and construction techniques were used to create this lightweight chair. Check out the pictures.

3. Sten Chair

Brooklyn-based designer Paul Loebach has created the Sten Chair. Named after the famous British WWII machine gun, the chair has a very simple design. It combines a carbon fiber ‘skeleton’, and fitted wooden components. In the designer’s words, “The carbon is used to take advantage of its incredible rigidity and is employed in ‘connective’ areas where a chair needs structure the most. This arrangement allows for the simple wood parts to fit neatly into the molded form, and provide a warm natural material where the body contacts the chair. Developed with the engineering support of Klinger Engineering.”

4. Rocking Chair

Young French designer Clement Diaz has created the Rocking Chair as a part of her diploma project of Crafts and Design at Ecole Boulle. The elegant rocking chair is made from nickel steel and carbon fiber. From the designer, “The reinterpretation of the rocking chair by the technical codes, aesthetics codes, and production codes of the Modernism. Like a memory, it creates a connection between craft and mass production. Between handmade and design. Between the beautiful and the useful. Where the technique gives aesthetics quality by the use.
