Carbon Chair by Bert Jan Pot

In the development of the Fiberglass DSR Chair by Charles Eames, more than fifty years ago, a carbon prototype of the chair was built. Till today, the prototype still stands because of it’s brilliant engineering. Bert Jan Pot designed the Carbon Chair in corporation with Marcel Wanders for Moooi, inspired by the carbon prototype Eames once created.
The pattern on the seat is very intriguing and reflects the strength pattern of the original DSR chair. Every point on the rim of the chair is connected with the four points connecting the seat to the base frame. But most of all, I think this chair is really pretty to look at.
