If the Rolling Chair looks familiar to you, it's likely because you recognize it as a recreation of an iconic Eames Chair from the 1950s. What's different here is that the fabrication of this piece of furniture has been refreshed and takes a much more Earth-conscious angle than the original did.
Fast-growing bamboo was used here instead of pressure-treated wood. Designers Olivia Meillassoux and Céline Coutard cut it into strips and wound it around and around, gradually forming the shape of a smooth seat and backrest. The technique highlights the beautiful texture of the tree ring pattern. A bright splash of vivid green paint coats the back of the Rolling Chair, enlivening its appearance and alluding to the principles behind its creation.
