Patch was launched by Benjamin Hubert for Bla station on pavilion 8, stand D36 during the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, 14th-19th of April 2010.
The chair design consisted of a patchwork fabric upholstered onto a plywood shell supported by CNC formed steel legs. The language of flat metal work construction used in civil engineering inspired the modern chair. Industrial sheet steel panel riveting with the flatwork steel completing the relationship was referenced by to patchwork upholstery detail.
