British designer Benjamin Hubert in collaboration with portuguese manufacturer De La Espada created the Pelt chair. This new dining chair launched during the London design festival, is thinked between simplicity and the minimalisme.



From the designer website: "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 rearlegs".



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.
