ST10 Chair

The HUSSL ST10 chair from Insitu draws from ski technology for its unique look.

ST10 Chair


March 31st, 2009

Furniture is an area of design with strong traditions, with many of the world’s top manufacturers still using traditional construction techniques. But the beauty of design today is our ability to borrow from technologies from the most unlikely of places.

The HUSSL ST10 chair from Insitu incorporates ‘sandwich’ technology – a technique more commonly used in ski construction. Modified and adapted into the chair’s design, the technique gives the ability to produce slimmer dimensions.

Constructed mainly with wooden materials, the chair uses the composite technique in the back legs – a wooden core reinforced with an aluminium cover. This creates a stable, yet flexible compound material and provides higher resistance to mechanical pressure and improved tensile strength.

Tapering to just 8mm at the top, the back of the chair has a light springiness and filigree look: combined with its minimalist basic design, this makes the ST10 an extremely strong and comfortable stacking chair.

The chair’s front legs and ergonomically shaped seat are made of plywood, also reinforced with laminate on both sides. The slats of the backrest are made of solid Beechwood, reinforced with thin layers of laminate on both sides. The whole chair weighs 5kg.

The thin dimensions and variety of surface treatments offer a range of unique appearances – from structured laminate dark stained to fineline veneer finishes, stained wood tones and coloured lacquered finishes.

The ST10 design by PETER HUSSL and ARGE2 can be viewed at Insitu’s showrooms in Melbourne and Sydney.
