Product Discovery

Pebble Series: The Pebble Collection is the first collection designed for De Vorm by Benjamin Hubert. Hubert was inspired by the flat, smooth, rounded stones ‘Pebbles’ that wash ashore on the beach. Pebble is designed with ambitions of high comfort, broad range of applications, minimal environmental impact and, as with the other furniture of De Vorm, production in the Netherlands. To ensure minimal environmental impact Pebble can be completely disassembled. Thus, all components are easily recycled and transport volume is reduced to a minimum. De Vorm has selected polyethylene, one of the cleanest types of plastic, for the seats. Both at home and in projects Pebble offers a fresh and timeless addition to the interior.

The Pebble collections consists of chairs, stools in three heights and a table. The Pebble chairs and stools are available in 5 colours.

Tuesday 15th May, 6.00pm – 7.30pm After Hours furniture event for friends of Great Dane Contract & DesignEX. Bringing commercial interiors inspiration to the industry. Limited numbers – Main Entrance – Hall 1. RSVP now!
