Here's some text from Hashimoto:

Last year, I was honored to receive the Design Report Award Special Mention, for my “Thin Chair”. I am happy to inform you that I will be joining the SaloneSatellite again this year.

In 2009, I will be joining the exhibit with a design platform—books. The design platform is created by Tatsuo Yamamoto and Jun Hashimoto and will participate in the Milan SaloneSatellite 2009.

A Chair that appears and disappears like a spider web. The weightlessness (approx. 2.1kgs) allows a woman to hold the chair with just one hand. Stainless steel wire/length: approx. 140m, diameter: 1.5mm. Approximately 2000 welding points holds the chair together.

Please be sure to stop by our booth when visiting the I Saloni Milano 2009

    maserati birdcage haha,

    really clever and the best part is it looks better on application, when some one is sitting on it(using). looks like floating. if it has some flexing, it migh teven be comfortable
