Upon first glance, this chair just looks like many other modern takes on a classic (typically plastic) form. Big whoop. But wait: this bad boy is actually made from hemp with a little heat and eco-friendly glue. Yes please!

I love seeing new technologies used to make modern pieces. It's always nice to see classic shapes being made in earth friendly ways. Natural furniture doesn't always have to be made from wood or look like it's been reclaimed from a barn. This chair is sleek, structurally sound and is a great use of materials and modern technology.
