Carbon Chair is a consistently constructive and yet formal and experimental design by Thomas Feichtner. It is a sheet of carbon fibre, which contacts the floor at three points and depicts a line from above and below, positively and negatively. The result is a formal interplay of inner and outer surfaces – a recurring theme that runs through many of Feichtner’s works. Carbon Chair is produced as part of a limited edition of eight pieces.
