Press: visual and tangible feeling of comfort.

Designed by
Benjamin Hubert

The Press chair epitomises research in seating design. “When working with any material,” comments designer Benjamin Hubert, “we like to push its potential to the maximum.” 

The result of two years of development, Press is named after the production process that allows complex shapes to be obtained from a three-dimensional veneer.

The curvature not only makes the body stronger while keeping it light, but also offers a visual and tangible feeling of comfort. The wood also emulates the shapes of upholstered seats, revealing the design’s innovative nature.
