Hammock Chair by Benjamin Hubert

British designer Benjamin Hubert has created “Cradle”, a unique blend of two typologies of seating, a net structured hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair. The chair’s aesthetic is purposefully architectural with a sharp rectilinear backrest contrasted with a softer seating area, breaking traditional rules of seating typology and styling. “Cradle” utilises 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 and cost.

Juliet. Traditional wooden frame which, narrower at the base, widens in a “puff” at the seat. Here, the rich upholstery re-invents the classic capitonné in a contemporary, soft, free version, enriched by original crimp stitching for interiors in recollection of the embroidery and ruffling of women’s sleeves and bodies, creating a faceted pattern that ripples the surfaces. With a complex creation that expresses all the mastery of the Poltrona Frau craftsmen. ” Take a look!
