HALO – The Limited Edition Crazy Colored Carbon Fiber Chair

Halo colored carbon fiber chair

We’ve seen a few sexy bathtubs for the home made of carbon fiber, such as the Vessel and the N°1 by Corcel. Now, made with the world’s first colored carbon fiber, Hypetex, the Halo chair by designer Michael Sodeau is the first produced colored carbon fiber design product on the market.

Created by UK-based designer Michael Sodeau, the Halo chair utilizes the high-performance properties of Hypetex, which is lightweight, strong and visually dynamic. The exceptionally thin structure is refined yet robust, marrying minimalist design with imposing form.

Michael Sodeau said: “The design follows the modernist rules of form and function with the removal of all unnecessary clutter, which is juxtaposed with the decorative aesthetic given by the material.

“The contoured shape interacts perfectly with light creating vibrant refractions on the surface of the material. When the chair is viewed from behind it hides what is in front, adding a playful quality that only reveals its full shape as you walk around it”.
