Benjamin Huber is the British designer behind the latest Layer collection that uses stretched fabric over metal frames to create a colorful 3D series.

With Benjamin Huber's name on the revolutionary 3D-printed wheelchair, it's clear that he has a strong ability to seek out innovative design techniques for his work. The 'Cradle' collection is described well by its name, as the chairs extend with the weight of its occupant, making for a comfortable experience that's similar to lazing in a hammock. Included is a room divider, table and two different chair designs.

The Layer collection combines bold shapes with vibrant colors, making the furniture stand out in any home. The fabric's material has a mesh-like pattern that extends down the entire back of the chairs, with its color contrasting the block of cushion that its attached to.
