Ripple Table Design by Benjamin Hubert. Benjamin Hubert has designed the particular world’s lightest timber stand as part of an internal studio room research project into light constructions. The stand, titled Ripple, will be 2.5 yards long, 1 metre extensive, and weighs merely 9 kilograms. Produced using 70-80% less substance than a standard hardwood table, Ripple may be assembled and manoeuvred by way of a single person.
The Ripple Table Design amazing strength to bodyweight ratio is empowered by an innovative creation process of corrugating plywood regarding furniture through strain lamination, which was developed by Ben Hubert with Canadian maker Corelam.
Ripple is made entirely from three ply 0.8mm birch airplane plywood, a hardwood sourced only inside Canada, where the stand is manufactured. The material matches that used in development of the Hughes H-4 Hercules : popularly known as the “Spruce Goose” : the world’s largest almost all timber airplane. The potency of the material in combination with the lamination process means the extra edge of Ripple actions just 3.5mm.
Ripple Table Design will be minimal in its layout language, employing a straightforward knockdown construction. The top area is corrugated plywood overlaid by way of a flat sheet, and the A-frame hip and legs are a sandwich development of two corrugated particle board layers. It will be on the market from September about commission through Ben Hubert. Material: Canadian Liven 0.8mm aircraft particle board
