Made entirely of carbon fiber, <5_MY designed by Michael Young for Coalesse combines materiality with technology to express its structural form and 21st century craft.
<5_MY combines ultra-lightness with exceptional performance: the chair weighs less than (<5) five pounds / 2.3 kg and can support 300 pounds / 136 kg.
The unique material allows for an array of colors and bespoke surfaces applications. Its endless mono-material design is adaptable to both for indoor and outdoor settings.
As Michael Young states: "The chair’s structure and form was developed as a result of working with a factory that is exceptional in creating high performance bicycles. This technology is ideal for applying to the development of an exceedingly lightweight stacking chair. We wanted to design a carbon fiber chair that is truly functional and ergonomic. The material is used economically and has been designed following rigorous technical guidelines."
