following the innovative construction of the pelt dining chair, benjamin hubert has designed four new products for de la espada. the new ‘pelt collection’ is comprised of two bar stools, a low stool, and a shelving system which were launched during london design festival at benjamin hubert: antecedents, the studio’s inaugural uk solo exhibition. the three stools utilise a thin 7mm plywood shell that wraps around a solid ash frame, akin to the skin over an animal’s skeleton. the shell extends down the four legs with a fluid form that seamlessly integrates with the solid frame beneath. the frame of the stool has been reduced to a simple cross construction linking the front and rear legs, and a handle is cut into each seat to enable easy maneuverability. in contrast to the primarily timber construction of the pelt collection, the two bar stools have been designed with a metal footrest, available in either polished aluminum or brass. the shelving system comprises a solid ash frame structure with shelves made from thin 7mm plywood. sharing the design language of the chairs and stools, each shelf has fluid forms that extend up the vertical supports of the frame, integrating the two elements and increasing the unit’s strength.
