In addition to making The New York Times' list for the Seventh Annual Year in Ideas, the Myto chair by German designer Konstantin Grcic received expanded press in the International Herald Tribune (both articles were written by Alice Rawsthorn). What's so special about this chair? For starters, this chair is strong, comfortable, light, stackable, compact and is made from a single piece of ecologically-friendly plastic that is viscous enough to pour into an intricate mold...
The plastic is BASF
's Ultradur® High Speed plastic
that is used in the auto industry. Made with minimum material, the chair is also cantilevered with no back lags (a testament to the plastic's strength). Manufactured by Plank
, we can't wait to see more of this chair!
Be sure to check out the International Herald Tribune's slideshow overview of Grcic's designs.
