'Prop' collection by Benjamin Hubert for Moroso

London-based designer Benjamin Hubert’s ‘Prop’ is a furniture collection that takes an honest approach to its construction, particularly the sofa, the studio’s first, by exposing and celebrating the timber framework which is conventionally concealed within upholstery.

“The Prop collection began with the sofa, and the concept stems from the studio’s research into the traditional construction of furniture within this typology” says Hubert.

“Examining an existing manufacturing process in a new light, the studio uses the exposed framework of the sofa and armchair as a mould for the seating area. A sheet of aero-ply is clamped and fastened to the solid timber structure, simplifying the entire construction process and removing the need for complex tooling.”

“The design language of the ‘Prop’ side table and coffee table is also informed by this overtly structural approach. Each is based on a simple, geometric timber fame, which forms the products’ structure and strength, inlaid with a thin plywood surface.”
