Aparte is a French design agency who recently presented a prototype of their paper-thin Katra chair, made of ramie fiber.
Katra is inspired by the intrinsic qualities of the material from which it is made. Formed from a composite consisting primarily of ramie, the material offers superior strength, lightness and durability. Katra’s design reflects these qualities and represents the unique creative opportunities the furniture industry is just beginning to explore with the composite.
A great combination of minimal design and eco-friendly technology.
