Description: Colour film positive showing: the cross section of a Modula chair frame showing the webbing process. Webbing, looped and fastened at each end is passed through pre-cut holes and pegged.
Text Transcript: ...'The webbing itself is now made with a new high-strength continuous-filament-yarn (also used in the manufacture of motor tyres), giving greatly increased tensile strength. This, together with an increase in webbing length of over one third, and a new method of fixing, has resulted in a dramatic increase in reliablity.' .. ref: 'New extra-long-life suspension - Ercol Contract Furniture' 1976 brochure.
