hemp chair by werner aisslinger


The hemp chair by Werner Aisslinger has been designed for a lightweight manufacturing process stemming from the car industry; the renewable raw materials hemp and kenaf are compressed with a water-based thermoset binder to form an eco-friendly, lightweight and yet strong composite. Unlike with classic reactive resins, this method releases no organic substances such as phenol or formaldehyde during the cross-linking process. The only by-product of the curing procedure is water.
