Ribon Chair designed by Vivianne Kollevris exhibited at Salone Satelitte 2013. Milan.
Ribbon Chair exploits the potential offered by high performance fibre reinforced concrete to create a piece of furniture unlike any other. At just 22mm thick, Ribbon Chair utilises the tremendous strength offered by concrete of this type to produce a thin and elegant form, in contrast to what one expects to see from concrete.
