shigeru ban conceived a light-weight chair that uses carbon fiber TENAX® for lightness and tensile strength. rather than using carbon fiber on its own, he created a tough structure by sandwiching aluminum between thin layers of carbon fiber. The use of aluminum in the combination enables successful pinpointing of the characteristics of carbon fiber.
