Winner of furniture design of the year 2019, Tense is a collection of lightweight flat-pack furniture by Lausanne-based design studio Panter & Tourron.
The Tense collection, which holds it shape using tensile strength, includes a table, chair, screen dividers, pendant light and wall light. The research project explores the evolution of living in a time of global mobility and fluid identity.
Judges comments: "We appreciate the consciousness of the lightness and logistics of Tense. The intelligent design produces less waste and considers the fact that as a species we now live lighter with increasingly nomadic lifestyles. This research project has great potential to evolve."
