‘pelt’ chair by benjamin hubert for de la espada H740mmx W460mm x D540mm

 

 

 

‘pelt’ is a chair made from a thin 8mm plywood shell that wraps around a solid ash frame. conceived by benjamin hubert for furniture brand de la espada, the seating design extends downwards through the front legs making it appear as a seamless unit, integrated with the solid frame beneath. the front and rear legs of the chair are linked via a simple cross construction which offers overall stability and support.

this geometric arrangement is a result of CNCing a complex twist to maintain the integration; of the start and end points. the chair offers efficient stacking with its ability to put six together. the collection was developed over a period of 12 months after several iterations of prototyping and testing.
