Hypetex, the world’s first coloured carbon fibre brand, is collaborating with renowned furniture designer Michael Sodeau to create an exclusive lounge chair that will be displayed at central London’s leading design show, designjunction this September.
Entitled Halo, the lightweight lounge chair is produced entirely from Hypetex and has been designed to utilise the unique properties of this new composite material.
Thin tapered supports connect the circular back to the rear legs giving Halo its graphic simplicity, and the impression that the back is floating independently from the seat. The exceptionally thin wing-shaped seat sits on three legs, providing it with both stability and a visual lightness that echoes the reflective qualities of the material.
Michael Sodeau said: “Hypetex has opened doors in terms of new design possibilities. Its strength, lightness and vibrant colour options make it an exciting new material for the design industry.”
Hypetex is a high-tech composite material that has been created by leading engineers from the world of Formula One racing, following seven years of research and development. It is light, bright, bold and strong, making it ideal for use in the design world.

These comfy looking modern chairs were designed by German design studio WertelOberfell. The raw shape of the Mannequin chair is plain, friendly, ergonomic and comfortable. The choice of one of the three ‘quilted dresses’ & bases gives the chair it’s final character.
The inspiration for it comes from our interest in patterns & structures and the concept of changing the appearance of a chair by dressing it in different ‘clothes’.

A striking occasional table for home and contract use. The white lacquered cylindrical table is made from a patented environment-friendly resin that contains handmade fish replicas, therefore no need of additional decoration than themselves. The designers explain: Fish that aren’t fish. That seem to float in water that isn’t water. They seem to be suspended in air that isn’t air. Like a dream. A wonderful mixture between minimalism and poetry is the result of this charming project, that is available in different versions of fish compositions and table sizes.
