Yesteryear’s Furniture, Today

Modeled on an abandoned stretched Eames Fiberglass Shell Armchair at the Henry Ford Museum, the design imagines the lost prototype reborn using the most modern materials with the most traditional methods. It’s woven out of 12k carbon fiber with a modified weaving pattern that gives it substantial strength & single-digit lightness. In the spirit of Eames’ design philosophy, its transparency lays bare its own construction methodology with visual access to every part, giving it an aesthetic coherence that feels both uncanny & curiously natural.

Designer: Matthew Strong
