Benjamin Hubert for De Vorm Pod Chair
British designer Benjamin Hubert developed the Pod Chair for Netherlands-based contemporary furniture company De Vorm. Created as a “privacy chair,” the design incorporates various elements that allow it to feel like “a room within a room,” including sound-dampening properties and a larger head area perimeter. The chair’s shell is manufactured utilizing PET felt technology, which allows it to be an ecologically sustainable alternative to large upholstered furniture. While most furniture pieces become difficult to recycle due to the usage of timber, glue, foam and textile, this form uses recycled PET bottles for the molded felt form which in turn minimize the carbon footprint of the chairs in terms of transportation and storage costs.
