Hemp Chair by Werner Aisslinger
The Hemp Chair designed by the industrial designer Werner Aisslinger was displayed at the exhibition Poetry Happens during the Milan Furniture Fair. The chair material consists of 70% natural fibers with a binder of water based acrylic resin that is easily molded that releases no VOCs during the manufacturing process only water. After curing the material is lightweight and is as strong and durable as fiberglass; as the designer says, “It’s not rich, it’s honest”. A shelving unit/bookcase has also been designed by Aisslinger utilizing this material.
