Talma by Benjamin Hubert

Talma is a new lounge chair presented at last Salone.

At the Salone del Mobile, Moroso presented a compact new lounge chair called Talma. Moroso worked closely together with Benjamin Hubert to come up with this project.

Originally Talma is a type of cloak, after which the chair was named. The way the chair is upholstered reminds of the way a cloak is wrapped around the body. A lightweight, metal frame is hugged by a padded textile that closes at the front of the chair with zips and two fastenings.

The design comes from the studio┬┤s research into the traditional construction of upholstered chairs, and combining that with a view of reducing the material, weight and cost of this type of product.
