Incredibly thin and light at 2mm thick and weighing in at barely 2.2kg, the Kartell Piuma Chair is a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture. Its light and slender frame would make you imagine it was fragile, but this is not the case, for the chair itself is incredibly durable and flexible and makes for great usage outdoors in warmer weather conditions. The chairs manufacturing and design process is what sets it apart from others created by Kartell and allows it to reach such low weight and thickness measurements throughout - utilising two full years of research into the material of thermoplastic polymers to create this carbon-filled chair.
Before being utilised in this chair, the carbon filling within the chair was only using in aerospace and automotive design before Piero Lissoni had the idea to use modern injection moulding technology to create this design. He created a new methodology too, making a unique blend of carbon-filled plastic that gave it a massive amount of tensile strength, whilst maintaining an incredibly thin and impressive silhouette, making the Piuma a true breakthrough into the future of furniture’s industrial design.
This incredible work of craftsmanship highlights Kartell’s impressive mission to further the future of furniture creation, making this one of the most impressive occasional chairs available here at beut
