Chair #352

—Designed by Omer Arbel

Wow, what a thin profile! Apparently this design would not be structurally sound with just any traditional material. The 8.0 chair uses a structural concrete called Ductal, which is close to steel strength at an impressive ten times stronger than good old concrete. As the name suggests, Ductal is also ductile, so it will flex rather than crack. One question though anyone see a starfish with a missing arm?
