The Hemp Chair


The project

It is an innovative chair made of 90 % hemp. This will be an iconic object that will invite users to think differently about how things are produced nowadays .
It combines two very innovative materials and processes. Krown grows the chair from hemp and mycelium. And la Gadoue produces unique handmade textiles from hemp and natural rubber. The textile cover will be applied to the chair to bring comfort and make it long lasting. By using these local natural materials and new technics we create a model of production with a reduced environmental impact.
