London-based designer Benjamin Hubert has created the Bow furniture series in collaboration with Portuguese company De La Espada. The furniture series including a trestle table and bench was presented at the London Design Festival 2012. According to the designer, “Bow is a system of simple timber frames and surfaces held in tension by a rolled sheet of mild Steel. The rolled steel allows for a great strength to weight ratio swell as economy of materials. It also has the benefit in the bench of giving suspension to the user and some flex to the seat. The integration between the steel and timber has been CNC cut to maintain a fluid integration of the two materials and geometries. The timber and steel system has also been designed to be knockdown for cost effective shipping to reduce its carbon footprint.”
