South Korean designer Il Hoon Roh has created a limited edition armchair, called ‘Luno‘, by weaving together by hand thin strings of carbon fiber. Through experiments conducted by suspending a string at many different positions, the designer allowed gravity to shape the final form, resulting in a curvature which is smooth and natural.


To materialize this curve, a hexagonal shape  was used on the surface, and carbon fibre strings were woven from such surface to the metal base. “Each carbon fibre string was allowed to find its most optimal position, resulting in a strong and efficient final product” says the designer.
