Pelt Chair
Pelt chair designed by Benjamin Hubert for modern furniture design brand De La Espada. The chair shell is made from 8 mm plywood that wraps around a solid ash base.

SUB CON took part in this rather complicated development. The main problem was the very sharp bending between the side and the back of the chair, which normally will require 3D veneer. The front and rear legs of the chair are linked via a simple cross construction, which offers overall stability and support. In addition to this, pelt can be stacked up to six high. 

Manta chair
Manta is a dining chair suitable for private and contracts applications. Designed by Matthew Hilton, developed and manufactured by SUB-CON for De La Espada. The chair is characterised by a multi-directional curved plywood moulding for the combined back and arm rest providing the chair with a strong sculptural element distinguishing it from the many plywood chairs on the market.

Tapas Chair
This Matthew Hilton designed chair is available in Oak and Walnut. It is produced for De la Espada. The unique shape of the plywood seat shell with the high comfortable back set upon three legs makes a compact piece of modern furniture.

Equatilt chair
Equatilt chair is one of the very successful ergonomic pieces of furniture designed by Charles Furniture, a Dublin-based furniture design company. Equaltilt chair is designed by Dr Ó Conchubhair, who is an Industrial Design lecturer at NCAD, National College of Art and Design, Dublin. The chair meets particular requirements for seating  having to maintain postures for prolonged periods of time without breaks while practising and performing.

In the course of designing the chair, 250 worldwide  orchestras were consulted in order to establish all the correct ergonomic factors required.

Equatilt is an example of a productive international collaboration that has merged interdisciplinary skills and processes into a very  health-positive furniture solution.
