Somerset House - AXYL

By Benjamin Hubert and LAYER

Benjamin Hubert of experience design agency LAYER will launch the AXYL collection for UK furniture brand Allermuir. Comprising a chair, available with and without arms, a bar stool and a café table – AXYL utilises a strong geometric design language that is entirely original yet draws on familiar references, such as the A-frame typology and a mid-century Danish wrap-around shell.

AXYL is Benjamin Hubert’s and LAYER’s first collaboration with a British furniture brand, and the intensive project, including high tooling investment, was completed in two years from sketch to full production. The AXYL collection is part of LAYER’s ongoing commitment to working with companies to lower their impact on the environment.

‘With the AXYL collection, I believe we have created a stacking chair with a truly new expression embodied in the identifiable inverted ‘Y’ silhouette of the aluminum casting.’ Benjamin Hubert, founder of LAYER.
