MILAN DESIGN WEEK 2013: Tofu armchair by Leonardo Talarico

Easychair made of Tofu by Leonardo Talarico.
TOFU is the provocative armchair by Leonardo Talarico.  As its name suggests, this piece of furniture is entirely made out of Tofu, one of the most nutrient, soft and ancient aliment. Through a dehydration process and subsequent thermal shock, tofu gains important mechanical properties and it can be used as a structural material. The armchair is treated with a natural colour that is able to change shades of colour based on the acidity of the material.
