HEMP CHAIR
BY WERNER AISSLINGER
FOR MOROSO
The main innovative elements of the Hemp Chair armchair are firstly the material used to make it, and secondly the production techniques involved. The chair is entirely made from a new industrial material based on natural fibres containing 75% hemp, which is eco-friendly, cheap to produce and long-lasting. The monocoque shell is created from a single sheet of this material, which undergoes a thermoforming process derived from the automobile industry that guarantees a low level of environmental impact. Slim, light (it only weighs10 kg) and easily stackable, it is characterised by a shape that is both organic and technological. The chair’s striking overhanging profile follows the curve of the human body and calls to mind the first - celebrated - chair created from a single sheet of plastic and designed by Verner Panton at the end of the 60’s. The design of the Hemp Chair is such that every curve alternates with a straight section, while the three dimensional development is marked by a series of three smooth right-angle corners: both features increase structural strength and add to the technical image of the shell. It is available in a selection of bright colours, either one colour overall or different colours for the exterior and interior. The surface finish reveals the natural texture of the compressed vegetable fibre used: gently marbled and covered with a soft cloth finish.
