Ergon Nomos Chair by David Milner and Travis Frankel

From @synperia, a sinuous chair derived from "the exploration of the potential of form and material strength afforded by carbon fiber."

The Ergon Nomos Chair is the first product to emerge from Los Angeles based design and fabrication studio Synperia. The shape of the chair began as a trace of a person's back, in charcoal on a piece of butcher's paper.


Says Synperia, "That trace merged with the co-founders' desire to explore the strength and material properties of carbon fiber. The structural loads on the chair dictated the thickest section at the curve between the seat and the back, tapering to the thinnest possible section at the ends."


"The form of the carbon fiber shell emerged as the resultant of these first principals. The form of the base is a response to the geometry of the shell."


"The legs trace the radii of the arcs with which they intersect." More at Synperia.
