Ripple 2.0: Making waves

Co-inciding with the Design Museum’s Designs of the Year 2014, Benjamin Hubert Ltd has launched the
production-ready version of the nominated Ripple table, which is now also available for purchase through Benjamin Hubert Ltd.

The table can still be assembled and maneuvered by a single person but can now easily support the equivalent of a person’s weight, further demonstrating the properties of the innovative lightweight construction.

Following a series of rigorous strength and stability tests undertaken by the studio, the underside of the table’s surface now curves gently across its length and width, adding tensile strength to the structure. The improved leg design now employs a hollow triangular profile that offers increased strength and rigidity in two directions. The brace between the legs has a curved cross section to increase the strength of the connection between the leg and the table surface. As the corrugated plywood meets the legs, it gradually transitions to a flat surface, providing a smooth intersection.

Prop: Soft seating

‘Prop’ Sofa and armchair collection designed by Benjamin Hubert Ltd for Italian brand Moroso launches at Milan’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April 2014. In addition, ‘Prop’ is the first sofa designed by the studio.

The design took an honest approach to the construction of the collection by exposing and celebrating the timber framework, which is conventionally concealed within the upholstery.

Ripple: Light on the Environment

Benjamin Hubert designed the world’s lightest timber table as part of an internal studio research project into lightweight constructions. The table, titled Ripple, is 2.5 metres by 1 metre, and weighs just 9 kilograms. Made using 70-80% less material than a standard timber table, Ripple can be assembled and manoeuvred by a single person and is potentially 400% more sustainable than solid timber constructions.

The table’s impressive strength to weight ratio is enabled by an innovative production process of corrugating plywood for furniture, developed by the studio in collaboration with materials company Corelam.

Ripple was launched during London Design Festival at Antecedents, the studio’s first solo exhibition in the UK.

Amass: Waste not, want not

AMASS is a system of recyclable plastic modules designed by Benjamin Hubert as part of a commission to create a 200m2 auditorium space for leading UK trade show 100% Design. With over 600,000 tonnes of waste produced by trade shows each year, AMASS was designed to be a re-usable system that offers a more sustainable option for exhibition design. Following the success of the 100% Design auditorium, AMASS will be put into production for use in exhibition, retail, hospitality, and commercial projects.

The product comprises three components that can be configured into various orientations, to create a sense of controlled randomness. These modules can be assembled into straight and right angle walls of different depths and heights that define space yet maintain visual openness.

Cradle: A new Typology

A collaboration between Benjamin Hubert and Italian brand Moroso, ‘Cradle’ is an investigation into a new chair typology. Based on the studio’s research into various seating formats, ‘Cradle’ is a unique blend of two existing typologies – a net hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair.

‘Cradle’ also represents the studio’s interest in innovative use of materials and construction techniques. A custom cut pattern allows the non-elastic textile that forms the chair’s back to perform in a three-dimensional way, offering the correct tension to comfortably support the body.

High res images are now available for ‘Cradle’.

Please email press@benjaminhubert.co.uk for further information or to arrange an interview.

 
Net: Industrial origins

‘Net’ is a series of small tables designed by Benjamin Hubert in collaboration with Italian brand Moroso. Constructed from expanded steel – more commonly found on industrial equipment and architecture – the collection stems from the studio’s research into material perceptions.

By utilising the expanded steel in a domestic context, the user’s perception of the material shifts from industrial to desirable and high-end. In reference to the industrial origins of ‘Net’, the design language is purposefully simple and geometric.

High res images are now available for ‘Net’.

Please email press@benjaminhubert.co.uk for further information or to arrange an interview.

 
Talma: Fashion for furniture

Named ‘Talma’ in reference to a type of cloak, this new chair, developed by Benjamin Hubert in collaboration with Moroso, comprises a frame enveloped in a softly padded textile.

The lightweight, CNC-shaped steel frame with integrated support straps gives form and structure to the chair yet allows it to maintain flexibility in the backrest, seat and base. The custom textile – developed in collaboration with Dutch brand Innofa – has integrated padding, providing comfort and minimising the use of polyurethane foam. In reference to the fashion inspiration behind the chair, the fabric is secured by way of zips and fastenings.

High res images are now available for ‘Talma’.

Please email press@benjaminhubert.co.uk for further information or to arrange an interview.

 
Membrane: Weightless volume

Designed by Benjamin Hubert in collaboration with German brand Classicon, ‘Membrane’ is a new chair driven by a desire to create volume without weight. The stainless steel and aluminium frame is covered in a 3D-woven mesh fabric and weighs only 3.5kg.

The innovative materiality and construction stems from the studio’s research into tents and the sports industry with a focus on space frames and stretched textiles. The seating area utilises integrated padding, and is held in tension using cables that are visible within the void of the chair’s base. The combination of the metal frame and padded textile minimises the need to use polyurethane foam, thus reducing the carbon footprint for this seating typology.

Please email press@benjaminhubert.co.uk for further information or to arrange an interview.

 
Textile launches with Innofa

Benjamin Hubert has worked with Dutch brand Innofa to develop a new elasticated padded upholstery textile. The new textile will be showcased at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April 2013 Pavilion 16 - Stand C29/D30.

Pelt launches

Pelt is a dining chair comprised of plywood and solid ash launching at the London Design Festival in collaboration with Portuguese manufacturer De La Espada.

The chair has a thin 8mm plywood shell that wraps around a solid ash frame, akin the skin over an animal’s skeleton. It extends down the front and rear legs with a fluid tab that seamlessly integrates with the solid frame beneath. The frame of the chair has been reduced to a simple cross construction linking the front and rear
legs. This geometry was made possible by cncing a complex twist to maintain the integration of the start and end points.

The chair also offers efficient stacking with its ability to stack 6 chairs.

Pelt has been developed over a period of 12 months after several interations of
prototyping and testing.

 
Tenda launches

‘Tenda’ is a series of textile lamps launching at the London Design Festival as a result of Benjamin Hubert’s materials driven research

‘Tenda’ Italian for tent is comprised of materials from a diverse mix of industries:

Fibre glass rods from the kite manufacturing industry
Lycra from the sports industry
4 way stretch mesh from the underwear industry
A construction technique from the tent industry

The primary component of the lamp series is a multi layered construction of textile. The exterior is covered by a quad-directional high stretch micro mesh. This give the lamp its volume and an ethereal lightness with a sense of varying opacity depending
on your viewing position. The internal layers are constructed from Lycra which diffuses the light source. The interplay between external stretched convex curves and internal concave forms creates a dynamic typology of components and progressive design language. These layers of textile are supported by flexible fibre glass rods held in tension by textile and brass connectors.

The technical textile system has been developed in house over a period of 12 months after several iterations of prototyping and testing.

 
Bow launches

Bow is a series of furniture including a bench launched at the London Design Festival in collaboration with Portuguese manufacturer
De La Espada.

Bow is a system of simple timber frames and surfaces held in tension by a rolled sheet of mild Steel. The rolled steel allows for a great strength to weight ratio swell as economy of materials. It also has the benefit in the bench of giving suspension to the user and some flex to the seat. The integration between the steel and timber has
been CNC cut to maintain a fluid integration of the two materials and geometries.

The timber and steel system has also been designed to be knockdown for cost effective shipping to reduce its carbon footprint.

The system has been developed over a period of 12 months after several interations
of prototying and testing.
