Description

The Nantes chair model was designed based on a contemporary interpretation of furniture archetypes and the structural and formal possibilities of Escofet’s UHPC-Slimconcrete. A tensioned membrane, resolved with the lowest possible thickness and inserted into an independent, self-stabilising metal structure.
Inspired by the design of mass-produced, low-cost seats with metal structures and a tensioned fabric, we associated the characteristics of the behaviour of this material and the shapes it generates with the possibilities offered by UHPC-Slimconcrete in the site furnishings field.

The Nantes chair is reminiscent of mass-produced textile furniture. Fabrics hung on lightweight metal structures, sometimes folded, with the structure and membrane being completely independent. The lightweight nature of the UHPC-Slimconcrete products makes them easy to transport and reduces energy consumption in their fabrication. Their 100% recyclable material composition optimises their life cycle.
