Benjamin Hubert Examines the Human Perception of Comfort

Furniture collections and comfort don't always go hand in hand unfortunately, so Benjamin Hubert and Moroso have put together a collection based on research about the perception of comfort. The furniture consists of "an armchair, sofa, side table and coffee table," as stated on DesignBoom, and is called the Prop Collection.

The timber frame is very prominent in each piece, with comfortable-looking fabric used for the sitting section. The entire collection is very simplistic, and almost looks like something from the 1950s. Everything was made in a way that's easy to put together, without any crazy manufacturing process (which would probably bring the cost down on the items too).

In terms of comfort, people's eyes do not always match the end result of sitting on a sofa, which the designers examine in these furniture collections.
