Myto chair by Konstantin Grcic for Plank

Dezeen Showroom: Italian furniture brand Plank has evolved its classic 2007 Myto chair by German designer Konstantin Grcic using a plastic that is lighter and more flexible.

Created to prove that a cantilever chair could be made entirely from plastic, the Myto chair was achieved through a collaboration with chemical company BASF.

The novel plastic material developed for the project allowed Myto to be injection moulded as one monoblock, with a solid frame and a perforated seat and back that convey the feeling of flexibility associated with cantilever chairs.

Since its release 15 years ago, Myto has won several awards and entered the collections of museums around the world.

As well as being more light and flexible, the chair now features deeper and more vibrant colours, according to Plank.

Myto is available in black, white, traffic red, pure orange, yellow green or light blue, and is stackable, UV resistant and recyclable.
