A couple weeks ago, we brought you "Maritime" by Benjamin Hubert for Casamania. Today, we get an inside look at Hubert's "Pod," which is being produced by de vorm. The molded felt armchair is made from recycled PET bottles as "an environmental alternative to large upholstered furniture."The chair's ergonomics allow the user to work comfortably whilst feeling relaxed and separated from the hustle and bustle of daily life. It creates a room-in-room experience with the perimeter of the chair around the users head. The shell of the chair is the largest form ever produced utilizing pressed PET felt technology. This felt allows a distinctive aesthetic as well as offers sound dampening properties to increase the sensation of privacy with acoustic performance.
Video of the production after the jump...
The going gets good around the 1:06 mark, when you can see the mold in action... IKEA colors anyone?
It also stacks for easy storage and transportation, another nod to conservation.
