This is a sofa made of unusual material with unusual form. It designed by Matthew Strong based on a series of armchair prototypes at the Henry Ford Museum. The design combines between modern material and traditional method, resulting in a light, strong and unique sofa. More description by Matthew Strong:

The Carbon Fiber Eames Sofa imagines the sofa reborn using the most modern materials and the most traditional methods. Woven using a traditional woven caning pattern out of 12k carbon fiber tow, it weighs in at single digits, the weaving pattern adds substantial strength to the design and helps with cross-bond adhesion. It’s transparency lays bare its own construction methodology, and allows visual access to every part of the base, giving it an aesthetic coherence that feels both uncanny and curiously natural.
