British designer Benjamin Hubert has designed a great amalgamation of a hammock and a chair with the laser cut non-elastic textile back which is contrasted by soft seating. Hubert aptly calls this chair ‘Cradle’ since it is designed to give you the feeling of calmness and comfort. Cradle – a collaborative project between Hubert and Italian brand Moroso – is one-of-a-kind blend of two types of seating – architecturally structured hammock, which provides comfortable support for the sitter’s back, and a traditional lounge chair with a plush cushion.
“The chair’s aesthetic is purposefully architectural with a sharp rectilinear backrest contrasted with a softer seating area,” Hubert explains. The Cradle is made of the following materials: CNC-cut Kvadrat textile mesh, steel frame, moulded polyurethane, and Kvadrat textile. The chair’s dimensions are H 1400mm – W 550mm – L 700mm.
