Named after common bread, the PANE Chair undergoes a similar process as that involved in baking it. A semi–cylindrical block of fibers is rolled, inserted into a paper tube and baked in a kiln at 104 degrees Celsius. The fibers thus ‘memorize’ the shape of the chair.
The Pane Chair is by Tokujin Yoshioka who demonstrates very well how systematical use of small and light fibers can create the strength we know from solid materials.
