Hemp Chair from Studio Aisslinger: Designed in 2011, the Hemp Chair made its debut at the “Poetry Happens” exhibition in Europe. This is a concept design for a monobloc chair made of natural hemp fibers. It was designed for a lightweight manufacturing process and made of raw hemp and kenaf plant that are compressed with a water-based binder into the chair shape. It is both lightweight and strong.

If we had an honest government, hemp would be legal to grow in the U.S., instead we have to import it, sending more dollars overseas. That's just plain stupid.
