Cradle, armchair
by Benjamin Hubert, 2015

‘Cradle’ is a unique blend of two typologies of seating; a net structured hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair. The armchair stems from the studio’s materials driven, process led, industrial design approach, research into the construction of mesh materials, and a study of the relationships between traditional seating components.‘Cradle’ utilizes a custom-made cut pattern that allows a non-elastic textile to perform in a three dimensional way. This allows for the correct tension to comfortably support the body and both visually and physically reduces the product’s weight.

Seat in flame retardan polyurethane foam and polyester ber with wood frame. Backrest structure in powder coated steel and technical stretch fabric.
