Infinity Chair by Crafactor

infinitychair.jpgAs we've noted before (on several occasions, in fact), it's not always easy to find TreeHugger-worthy furniture built with rattan, and it's a shame. It grows best under a tree canopy (preserving rainforest habitats) and, like bamboo, can grow very quickly. It is a beautiful, renewable, durable material, so we're happy to see it put to such good use with the Infinity Chair, which is made entirely from rattan. A group of Thai designers has reinterpreted the aesthetic of traditional materials and crafts to make use of modern technology, with striking results. The rest of Crafactor's 2005 collection is worth a look as well, with clean designs and modern lines throughout their chairs, tables and more. ::Crafactor via ::Inhabitat
