Unique Hybrid Chair by Benjamin Hubert for CasamaniaApril 19th, 2011 - Posted in Furniture Design
British designer Benjamin Hubert has created the Unique hybrid chair given name a Maritime for Casamania. Inspired by traditional wooden shipbuilding techniques maritime is a solid wood range of chairs that are skinned internally with a formed plywood shell. The construction technique where the supports are visible on the outside allows for a distinctive design language that is in harmony with the material and production. The ribs allow for a structurally robust chair with minimum use of material. Maritime is comprised from solid and laminate ash and offered as an upholstered option. To enhance the construction details the range is also offered in translucent dyed colour ways.
