South Korea’s Studio Il Hoon Roh suspended string at various heights to create the curved shape of ‘Luno’, a limited edition armchair constructed of woven carbon fibre.

“Luno, which means ‘curve’ in Latin, is made of carbon fibre string woven together by hand and is an extension of the Rami series [a previous carbon fibre series].” says Studio Il Hoon Roh.

“Through experiments conducted by suspending a string at many different positions, the designer allowed gravity to shape the final form, resulting in a curvature which is smooth and natural.”

“To materialize this curve, a hexagonal shape was used on the surface, and carbon fibre strings were woven from such surface to the metal base.”
