Proteinaceous spider silk or carbon fiber? It would be hard to decide upon first glance. Fact is, if you answered chair or settee to yesterday’s “What the…?”, you guessed right.
The Random Chair, The Random Stool and The Random Light are all the work of Dutch designer Bertjan Pot. They’re created by soaking the long carbon fibers in epoxy resin and coiling them over a mold by hand. Once dried, the fibers become a self-supporting structure. DIY? Well, maybe we’ll leave this one to Bertjan and the spiders.
