Sandwich chair 1997

Light weight composite chair.

In 1997, as a design student, Flip Ziedses Des Plantes set himself the challenge to make a super lightweight chair. This resulted in a material research of sandwich composite materials.
The chair is constructed of glass fibre, epoxy resin, wood profiles, aluminium and nylon.

This project embodies FZDP’s innovative character and enthusiasm for material research. FZDP design studio loves to show raw materials and construction in aesthetical products.
