A family of outdoor chairs and stools designed for Allermuir by Benjamin Hubert of LAYER.
The collection takes its name from the enigmatic rolling fields of crops in the British countryside, which are represented in the following parallel wires of the seating forms.
Design by Benjamin Hubert | LAYER
CROP was 12 months in development and is a response to the fast growth of outdoor dining and hospitality, which has been driven by social distancing needs in the midst of a pandemic.
LAYER and Allermuir believe this growth will continue in a post pandemic world, driven by a newfound appreciation of al fresco dining and socialising.
The CROP range - Side Chair | Armchair | High Stool | Lounge
Each product in the range is crafted from a steel rod frame with slim, robot-welded wires forming the seats and backrests. The flowing curves of the seats and backrests mimic the pillowed shape of soft seating, offering comfort that echoes the gently curvaceous visual language. The CROP arm and side chairs stack four high to allow for ease off transport and storage in both residential and commercial settings.
