Well-tailored: Hem chair by Modus

Introducing Hem, a lightweight and sustainably manufactured soft shell armchair designed by London-based designers from PearsonLloyd for British brand Modus. For this chair, PearsonLloyd avoided using the standard cold cured polyurethane molding process and instead opted for a simple steel outer frame that supports a lightweight and non-structural upholstered seating element. The name Hem references PearsonLloyd’s approach to the upholstery, since the designers approached it like tailoring by pattern cutting the panels together. The result is a loose fitting, flat pack upholstery with prominent seams that clips to the frame.

Founded in 2000 by Jon Powell and Ed Richardson, Modus is a British brand that collaborates with known designers.
