designboom recently had a chance to inverview british designer benjamin hubert during our visit to the ‘antecedents’ exhibition at the 2013 london design festival. presented at the aram store, the installation featured an exclusive look behind the prolific young designer’s process, showcasing new experiments, prototypes and products for companies such as moroso, classicon, de la espada, menu and corelam. given that the london-based studio conducts material-driven projects centered around production technique and process, hubert challenges the everyday application of traditional manufacturing methods with innovative products.

‘a lot of our projects are very complex,’ hubert tells designboom. ‘because we’re usually doing something innovative or something interesting with materials or construction, it inherently causes a longer design process — so everything can take up to two years. I mean it can sometimes just be the negotiation, which is the harder part, or might be physically making something work in the factory.’ some of his most recent work including ‘ripple’ – the world’s lightest timber table – and other process intensive furniture pieces such as the ‘pelt chair’, ‘talma’, ‘membrane’ and his ‘cradle + net’ collection were also featured at the show.
