Milan 2012: a single piece of fabric folds around the moulded polyurethane foam seat of this club chair by London designer Benjamin Hubert.
The cover is attached to the chair with Velcro so the upholstery is completely free of stitching.
Dressing the sculptural form with the loose upholstery allows the creases to become a feature of the overall aesthetic.
The fabric can easily be removed and swapped for different alternatives.

Benjamin Hubert x Cappellini
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 chair's 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.
