Benjamin Hubert has designed Maritime Chair inspired by the maritime world in collaboration with Italian furniture brand Casamania. The simple timber chair was launched last week in Milan during Salone Del Mobile 2011. In designer’s words, “Inspired by traditional wooden shipbuilding techniques maritime is a solid timber range of chairs which are skinned internally with a formed plywood shell.

The construction technique with the supports visible on the outside allows for a distinctive design language in harmony with the material and production technique.

Maritime is comprised from solid and laminate ash and offered as an upholstered option. To enhance the construction details the range is also offered in translucent dyed colourways and with an accompanying dining table.”
