Carbon fiber is a very interesting material. It’s strong and durable but also light and easy to model. It’s usually used to build cars but other items can also be created as well. Sir James Dyson and Nicholas Spens decided to use Carbon Fiber Gear to create coffee tables, dining chairs and sun loungers.
All the furniture they’ve created was designed for outdoors use only and is made of carbon fiber. Sir James Dyson really wanted to come up with something special and unique. He also wanted to design something from scratch and to draw the design according to his requirements. So he decided to create a completely new collection and he also decided to use a completely new material.
The coffee tables and the dining chairs from this new collection are based on a simple Z shape profile. It’s a self supportive design that doesn’t need supports or bracing. The shape also needed to be kept as thin as possible. After a series of calculations the designer came up with a build process which kept the overall thickness of the pieces to 1 cm. The loungers were then created in the same way. The pieces from this collection share a certain symmetry and they share certain common features. They all have modern designs and sleek shapes.
