Carbon Fibre Ch.airs by Laisr

Carbon Fibre Chair by Laisr

Laisr is a design studio based in Basel, Switzerland. They specialize in producing furniture using a very non-traditional material, carbon fibre. This super strong and ultra light material is mainly used for engineering purposes, but Laisr has applied it to three chairs in their product line. the reason they use the material is because of its super strength. While most don’t like to think of carbon fibre as a green material, Laisr believes that because its durability makes it last so long, the required energy to manufacture it is justified. They also took the design of the chairs into consideration, creating sleek and, what they believe, to be timeless form.

ch.air, Laisr’s first project, is a full carbon fiber chair made utilizing an innovative manufacturing process borrowed from the bicycle industry. The six hollow molded carbon fiber elements are interconnected by compression molded carbon fiber lugs in high-stress areas. This technique not only makes for a highly optimized structure and extremely light weight, it also offers manufacturing flexibility and a distinctive appearance. Visually, the goal was to create a logical, simple and well-proportioned design; we wanted the looks to be as lasting as the material is durable. ch.air is available in black (carbon fiber with glossy clear coat) or in stormtrooper white with black lugs.
