This elegant chair has been created by the prolific Nendo for Swedish furniture brand Offecct. The illusion of a cape spread over the frame is achieved by two pieces of plywood pressed together. The biggest concern both the designer and the manufacturer had with piece was the weight. This amount of plywood was quite a tall order for such small and delicate item. The solution came in using ultra light steel, developed originally for the racing car industry.

Aside from this exciting innovation, the piece strikes with its aesthetic creativity. It is amazing how a basic, familiar shape received a new life thanks to one clever visual detail.
