Lightweight and resilient: Halo by Hypetex

Carbon fiber brand Hypetex launched a new lounge chair, following a collaboration with London-based furniture designer Michael Sodeau. Sitting on three legs, the Halo chair has tapered supports that connect the huge circular back to the rear legs, while a thin, wing-shaped seat gives the design a visual lightness.

Halo, the lightweight lounge chair, is the first piece of furniture to be produced entirely from carbon fiber composite, Hypetex. Produced by applying high pressure and heat, Hypetex is a lightweight and resilient material that’s used in the automotive and cycling industries. The material was developed by engineers from Formula One, and is available in a range of colors and can be molded into complex shapes and forms.
