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.

The furniture collection, which was presented at Milan design week, weighs less than 20 kilograms altogether and can be easily assembled anywhere.

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."
