Dyneema Chair was inspired by the 'Lightness' book, in which Dutch
aerospace engineers express the idea that textiles can be very
effective when dealing with forces, and that textiles can be tweaked
towards a specific task.
chair can totally be made out of one strong textile by using multiple
In this case the chair is made out of Dyneema,
a super strong fiber, developed by the innovative chemistry company DSM.
Dyneema®,has the highest
strength-to-weight ratio of any man-made material in the world. On
weight-to-weight base, it is up to 15 times stronger than steel. It
is used in aviation and aerospace.
In the chair, a woven dyneema is used where tensile-strength is need, a knitted
fabric for comfort and a Dyneema-composite with epoxy resin makes up
the rigid parts.
