Live from London: Benjamin Hubert
Benjamin Hubert has been busy since graduating with an industrial design degree from Loughborough University in 2006. At 100% Design last week, he launched a A year in the making, a collection of several products for no less than seven British and international brands.
Hubert doesn't limit himself in either his choice of material or his final products. Exploring the applications of materials such as concrete, cork, wood, clay, glass, ceramics, and plastic, A year in the making includes chairs, stools, a table, a coat rack and a range of lighting for various manufacturers. Notable pieces include the concrete “Heavy Desk Light” for Decode London and the “Float” cork lights for Unique Copenhagen.
