Cradle Collection by layer for Moroso
Updated: Jan 26, 2020
Layer examines how the form, format and materiality of traditional product typologies can be re-imagined to enhance their everyday performance. The Cradle collection by Benjamin Hubert of layer, is a unique blend of two typologies of seating, a net structured hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair. The range utilizes a new high performance three-dimensional stretch textile developed by Layer in close collaboration with an Austrian textile factory. The knitted textile has high strength but low density, delivering the necessary ergonomic support for the body using a fraction of the material of a traditional mesh.
