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.
Halo colored carbon fiber chair
A recipient of the 2015 Red Dot Design Award, the Halo colored carbon fiber chair is a limited-edition product, with only 18 individually-numbered pieces produced in a select range of colors.
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”.
Hypetex is a high-tech composite material developed by leading engineers from the world of Formula One, following seven years of research and development. It is available in a wide range of colours and can be used in various industries.
GPF One is an official F1 licensee for merchandising and owns the Hypetex patent rights.
