'Dyneema Chair' completed out of one textile, by Bram Geenen

With his smart and super-lightweight ‘Gaudi’ stool, made from carbon fibre the Dutch designer Bram Geenen caused a sensation. ‘The light room’ is his newest concept – a space whose furnishing, consisting of a shelf, an armchair, a stool and a coffee table wouldn’t weight more than 7,5 kg. Some of the pieces are made from Dyneema® – a highly versatile plastic fibre that has the highest strength-to-weight ratio of any manmade material. It is used in aviation and aerospace.

Also, we found this video, which visualises the concept of the ‘Gaudi’ stool very well. Enjoy!

The Dutch designer Bram Geenen founded his studio Geenen two years ago, while he was still studying at the Utrecht School of Arts. His newest work, the ‘Gaudi Stool’ shows once more the constructive talent, which the 25 year old demonstrated already with his previous creations.

The shell of this ultra-light stool is made of carbon fibre and supported by a beam-grid substructure, which was produced by using rapid-prototying techniques.

“The shape of the stool was defined in the same way that Antoni Gaudi designed the structure of his churches: by making a model out of hanging chains, and so letting gravity determine the strongest shape for taking forces”, says Bram Geenen.
