The Sealed Chair by Francois Dumas is Built in an Unconventional Way

When it comes to building chairs, Francois Dumas uses interesting materials. Dumas uses plastic rods instead of wood or steel to build the frame. By heating the plastic, molding and manipulating its shape, he's created a unique set of chairs that are lighter and surprisingly durable. He's also built other seats with stronger thermoplastic and screws for those who are still concerned with the strength of plastic rods.

Francois Dumas will debut the chair as a part of [D3] Design Talents at imm cologne in Germany.
