MOOT by Established&Sons is a chair. The MOOT chair reflects Ross Lovegrove’s continuing fascination with carbon fibre, a light weight, high strength material whose use has been pioneered by aircraft manufacturers and Formula 1 car builders, for its unique combination of properties.  Conventionally used, carbon fibre has a smooth highly finished ‘front’ surface, and a rougher ‘back’, the product of its fabrication: a woven textile mat of fibres is placed on a form, and then impregnated with epoxy resin, which sets. Lovegrove works with double surface carbon fibre, to transform the material. MOOT is designed for practical everyday use, despite the degree of craft skill that goes into making it. The complex curvature, with a cantilevered seat, turning toward the back of the chair could not be achieved using any other material and gives it strength and stability, while reflecting Lovegrove’s love for the organic, anatomical forms that nature has evolved to achieve maximum performance for the use of the least possible material.
