layer is an experience driven industrial design agency founded by british designer benjamin hubert. the studio which is recognised for its customizable ‘go’ wheelchair design, unveiled their ‘cradle’ collection for moroso at salone del mobile 2016 and clerkenwell design week. the series includes a chair, screen, table and cushion covers, all of which use a bold three-dimensional stretched fabric.

the ‘cradle’ chair uses the geometric patterned textile which was created in collaboration with an austrian factory. the knitted material contains a high strength and low density; lending flexible support to sitters. a metal backrest cradles the cushioned seat block, forming a loop which joins underneath the structure. the design is available in a tall and smaller enveloping silhouette, providing the unique comfort of a hammock, without the hassle of awkwardly climbing in and out.
