This 'Composition Chair' is one of the latest wonders from Kyouei Design. Kouichi Okamoto and his Japanese firm have designed this unusual, one-of-a-kind chair made of aluminium wire.

The most fascinating part about the design of the 'Composition Chair' is that it's entirely handmade--that means no welding and no bolts whatsoever. A jig and a pair of pliers were the only tools used.

Implications - Customers are starting to feel the monotony of designs in the modern age. Only revolutionary ideas that have not previously been presented are attractive to consumers. Using abstract materials and production methods is a way companies can make their products more attractive as their audiences increasingly demand more inventive items.
