Coracle by Benjamin Hubert

We are still quite loving Benjamin Hubert’s Coracle lounge chair for De La Espada that was shown during the London Design Week 2011.

Coracle is a hand-woven leather lounge chair with stitched automotive leather and a leather-wrapped steel frame and is inspired by the small ‘coracle’ boats traditionally used in Wales since the Bronze Age, with its woven construction used to support the user. The crafted ‘tri weave’ is complemented by a leather wrapped steel frame with industrial reference points found in bike handles, creating a tactile touch point for the chair.

Other products from Benjamin Hubert at the London Design Week 2011 includes the Quarry Pendants and Cargo Chair.
