Garment Chair by Benjamin Hubert for Cappellini
Benjamin Hubert has designed Garment Chair for Italian company Cappellini. Garment Chair is a study in designing a chair that does not require stitches at all. The chair is fully upholstered using a single sheet of textile, and be able to undress every time.
From the designer:
Garment is a lounge club chair with a unique approach to the application and construction of textile in the furniture industry. The chair is a study into how to ’dress’ a piece of furniture defying the conventional rules and construction of typical upholstery.
A single piece of textile is loosely folded around a distinctive geometric polyurethane form. This construction and loose cover allows for creases to become part of the character of the chair reminiscent of a piece of fashion and increases the sensation of visual softness.
The chairs construction is ‘stitch less’ as it comprised of a single sheet of textile fixed onto the form with Velcro. The chair is detailed with inverted box pleats reinforcing this relationship with clothing. The cover can also be easily removed and interchanged based on the season or fashion.
