‘at layer, we focus on finding new forms and formats that deliver something visually unique to the market, whilst exceeding the necessary functional requirements’ explains layer founder benjamin hubert. the recycled aluminium in the Y-frame of the chairs uses just 5% of the energy required to create new aluminium and also offers significant cost savings.
