Here are some more details from De Vorm:

Last week, Holland's largest design and interior fair, 100% Design, took place in Rotterdam.

The Pod was nominated for the prestigious 100% Design Award and came out as winner!

The jury decided unanimously and praised the durable character and the applied PET felt technolgy.

The Pod by Benjamin Hubert is a large privacy chair and is perfect for breakout areas in offices or residential projects. The chair's ergonomics allow the user to work comfortably whilst feeling relaxed and separated from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It's almost a little room-in-room solution.

The shell of the chair is the largest form ever produced utilising pressed PET felt technology. This felt allows a distinctive aesthetic as well as offers sound dampening properties to increase the sensation of privacy. In addition, the entire design is environmentally friendly; from its material made of recycled plastic bottles to the fact that the Pod is stackable and therefore easy to store and to transport.
