Carbon™ Chair - Black : Moooi






The Carbon Chair was designed by Bertjan Pot and Marcel Wanders for Moooi in the Netherlands. The Carbon Chair by Bertjan Pot and Marcel Wanders speaks of dedicated craftsmanship in connection to high tech materials and the material expertise only possible by personal excitement, passion and the love of "enlighted amateurs". Indeed, this chair is truly amazing. Moooi's Carbon Chair is made with a new technique which combines carbon fiber and epoxy resin. Carbon is one of the strongest materials in the world. The Carbon Chairs have an incomparable visual lightness but benefit from the Carbon fiber which makes them physically strong. Individual strands of Carbon fiber are interwoven to create attractive intricate details. The Moooi Carbon Chair is a new exceptional design classic. The seat and the frame are attached with Hex-bolts. The Moooi Carbon chair is pre-assembled. No assembly required. For indoor use.

Moooi, perhaps the best thing to come out of Holland since Vincent van Gogh and De Stijl. Moooi is one of the leading avant-garde design houses in the world. Moooi represents new design by young and bright Dutch design talent who create fascination unique objects. Moooi keeps pushing the boundaries of what is accepted as the norm or the status quo, primarily in the fields of design but also with their groundbreaking image series by Erwin Olaf. Many Dutch designers have aligned themselves with Moooi. Some of these shining stars include Maarten Baas, Studio Job, Bertjan Pot and Marcel Wanders. Several pieces of the Moooi collection have already been snapped up for museum collections including the MoMA New York.

BERTJAN POT is a designer, probably best known for his Random Light (1999). The light started as a material experiment, which is basically the start of each product created by Studio Bertjan Pot. The outcome is usually an interior product showing a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors. Most experiments start quite impulsively by a certain curiosity for how things would function or how something would look. From there Bertjan takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push the boundaries a bit. The reward for each challenge is a new one. Studio Bertjan Pot works with manufacturers such as Arco, Established & Sons, Feld, Gelderland, Montis, Moooi and Richard Lampert.  Carbon Chair of Bertjan Pot and Marcel Wanders speaks of dedicated craftsmanship in connection to high tech materials only made possible by personal excitement, passion and enlighted.
