From the Designer:

‘Cradle’ is a new lounge chair launching at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in April 2013. The project is the result of a close collaboration between Benjamin Hubert and Italian brand Moroso. The product is a unique blend of two typologies of seating – a net structured hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair. The chair stems from the studio’s materials driven, process led, industrial design approach, research into the construction of mesh materials, and a study of the relationships between traditional seating components. ‘Cradle’ utilises a custom-made cut pattern that allows a non-elastic textile to perform in a three dimensional way. This allows for the correct tension to comfortably support the body and both visually and physically reduces the product’s weight and cost. The chair comprises a metal frame supporting a non-elastic textile with a geometric cut pattern, which cradles an upholstered seat block.
