クモの巣のように、強くて儚いイス
非常に細いワイヤで構成することでイスの可能性が広がることを目論んだ
ステンレスワイヤのミラー効果によって,周囲の光や背景の影響を受けて輪郭があいまいになり,その存在感が変化する
重量は約2.2kgと非常に軽く、片手で持ちあげることが可能である
直径1.6mmのステンレススチールワイヤを約2000箇所で溶接した
ミラノサローネ・UMUL2010 に選定

A chair that appears and disappears like a spider web
Stainless steel with a mirror finish allows the outline of the chair to blur into the light and its surroundings, thus allowing the presence to transform in different settings.
Diamond Chair, DKR, Pylon Chair, Corallo...There are historically and aesthetically celebrated wire chairs, which made a great impact on the designer.
Seeking new possibilities in the realm of chairs, he plotted to use only fine wires in its creation.
Irregularly welded trusses are used to create this strong but transient chair with an utterly innovative texture. In result it is probably the lightest piece of metal furniture that exists in the history of mankind.
The weightlessness (approx. 2.2kgs)allows a woman to hold the chair with just one hand.
Approximately 2000 welding points hold the chair together.
Material : Stainless steel wire : length : approx.140,000mm / diameter : 1.6mm
