Why Design Now?: Lin 94 Chair

Event Date: 
Sunday, December 5, 2010

Why? Flax is a light, natural fiber used to make linen cloth, but in the hands of François Azambourg, it transforms into high-performance, recyclable furniture. Lin 94 is a composite chair made from 94% renewable materials and an 80% plant-based epoxy resin. Lighter than glass fiber and similar in strength to carbon fiber, flax requires less energy to produce and is recyclable.
