Benjamin Hubert x Cappellini ‘Garment’

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.
Garment is the first collaboration between Cappellini and Benjamin Hubert launched at Salone Del Mobile in April 2012.
