Iskos-Berlin, the designer of the Fiber chair, has said: "One of the most difficult and noble disciplines is to design without eccentricity. To create simple, well-functioning, almost ordinary objects that nevertheless have strong identities. We designed Fiber chair to do just that with a clear sculptural language that refuses to compromise on comfort. It's a chair stripped of all unnecessary layers leaving the chair with a seat, back and armrests that is integrated in one harmonious shell, perfect for nesting yourself into. The iconic form marries soft, embracing curves with an environmentally friendly wood fiber composite, giving Fiber chair a distinctive tactile texture while also keeping it 100% recyclable.
MATERIAL:Shell consists of an innovative composition with plastic and up to 25% wood fibers. The wood fiber and plastic blend is injected into the mold, forming the chairs shell. The shells inside is then upholstered with foam and fabric. The fabric is glued to the shells surfaces and stapled using a pipe on the edges. This ensures a smooth and tight surface of the textile. Wood base is cut from solid oak wood and wet lacquered.
