LAYER X Muuto Present the Strand Lighting Collection
View Slideshow

LAYER founder and experience designer Benjamin Hubert designed the Strand lighting collection for Muuto, comprising four pendant lamps that have been constructed with a steel frame that’s been spray-covered in an innovative cocooning material. Driven by a desire to create a lighting series with simple contemporary forms using a minimal amount of material impact, Hubert created more from less. Strand relies on softened forms of industrial lighting found in public spaces, and a neutral palette, to adapt to a wider range of environments. Available in four different sizes and shapes, Strand’s pendants can be hung individually or grouped together to make a statement.

“We are proud to be the first British designers to work with renowned Scandinavian design brand Muuto. As a brand, they are aligned with our ambition to create simple and accessible design that can be owned by many and seamlessly integrated into the home. With Strand, we have created a collection of softly voluminous pendant lamps that exude gentleness and sensitivity,” shared Benjamin Hubert, founder of LAYER.
