From Benjamin Hubert:
Bow is a series of furniture including a trestle table and bench [launched] at the London Design Festival in collaboration with Portuguese manufacturer De La Espada.
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.
