Kartell's much anticipated Piuma - an ultra-light, ultra-strong and super thin chair - has gone into production.
Piuma is one of the most revolutionary and enterprising products in Kartell's repertoire of technology and materials.
At barely 2.2kg and just 2mm thick, Piuma is not only extremely light and slender but also incredibly durable, flexible, foldable and suitable for outdoor use.
The chair's manufacturing is unprecedented and it took two years of research and development to bring it into production. Before now, the carbon compound used in Piuma has only been used in automotive and aeronautics. It is produced using new injection moulding technology and a previously untried blend of carbon-filled plastic.
Piuma is a true breakthrough of industrial design. The chair is currently available in green, beige, blue.
