Floris Wubben, polypropylene, driftwood, sculptural seat, No. 3 Bench,

Dutch designer Floris Wubben crafts beautifully strange pieces that combine natural and high-tech materials. It’s that blend of rough, textured surfaces with new technologies that makes his designs stand out from the crowd. One of our favorite examples is the No. 3 Bench, made from an accordion-folded sheet of white polypropylene that follows the contours of a piece of driftwood.

Tactility is especially important in today’s day and age, as we’re in constant competition with a world full of screens. That is the beauty of Floris Wubben‘s Pressed Objects; they aim to bring back textures to our day-to-day life. Made from pressed epoxy clay, the objects come in the shape of vases, flowerpots, and recipients, all created by a coalition between the hands and a machine.

Playful and made from felt, Plyfelt is an exploration in materials in the form of a unique, undulating seat. The work of Dutch designer Floris Wubben, this two-person sofa fashions the eco-friendly fiber into a wave-form for a naturally comfortable rest you’ll want to plant your—erm—bottom on.

Floris Wubben’s Eyrie Bench is a Human Nest Inspired by Eagles

Floris Wubben, Eyrie Bench, wooden seat, human nest,

The noun Eyrie is “a large nest of an eagle or other bird of prey, built high in a tree or on a cliff.” Take it poetically or quite literarily, like this Dutch design studio recently did. The Eyrie Bench by Floris Wubben is a cumulus of interconnected wooden ash slats resting on tree branches that form its legs. Sculptural and natural, this seat works as a human nest inviting you to sit back and take a rest.
