Designed by Sam Hecht/Industrial Facility, Branca is robotically made from a single piece of wood. The design allows for the back legs to support the critical joints of the armrest, the seat and the back. The joints are seen as but a part of the seamless nature of the chair and its simple outlines belies the complexity of production. Branca is inspired by wooden branches that turn, twist, meet and branch off. The result is comforting to the eye, to the hand and to the body. The Branca range includes a chair, a stool and a table.

Sam Hecht was born in London in 1969. His training began at the Central Saint Martins School of Art. His interest in industrial design and architecture led him to apprenticeships including David Chipperfield. Hecht thus began to define the style that characterises his personality as a designer. A profound search for the essential, acute observation of the world we live in and a belief that simplicity can be inspirational. In 1993 he completed his Masters at the Royal College of Art, followed by 3 years in California with IDEO, and 3 years in Tokyo. This period involved the collaborations with Naoto Fukasawa, producing some startling product typologies over the course of 6 years. In 2002, he co-founded Industrial Facility with his partner Kim Colin. In 2010 he was awarded the ‘Designs of the Year’ for the Branca Chair. In 2008, he was elected as a Royal Designer for Industry (RDI), the highest accolade a designer can receive in the UK, and was also nominated for the Prince Philip Design Prize.
