Talon Carbon Chairs Chosen for Haneda Cafe

17 November 2002

The Yahoo Internet Café at Haneda Airport Tokyo has just installed Talon carbon fibre furniture for their client chairs.

At 2.5 kilos, the chairs are one of the lightest commercial chairs available and their ISO Level 5 endurance rating means they are suitable for almost continuous use. The use of carbon fibre has enabled the designers to create a chair that is warm to the touch, exceptionally comfortable and with a fluid open form that works well in most applications.

Talon Technology manufactures the chairs primarily from carbon braid over urethane foam cores in an epoxy resin matrix. Originally developed in Unigraphics and then transferred to CNC machined aluminium tooling, these complex parts are RTM moulded to maintain a high degree of interchangeability and excellent surface finishes.

Furniture is the second biggest consumer durables market after automotive and the falling price of carbon, coupled with advances in materials processing technologies are opening significant opportunities for carbon components in the design / style end of this market.
