Web-Patterned 'Hechima 4' Seating Only Looks Frail

This frail-looking creation of Japanese architect Ryuji Nakamura is called Hechima 4 – not the most arty of names, but one pays little attention to such details when in the presence of its unique form. Appearing bouncy and airy, it seems little less than a miracle that one can actually sit rather than float on this maze of paper strips.

His previous work, the chair Nima, exhibits the same concept and material choice, but with a more sculpture-like appearance.
