Benjamin Hubert of LAYER design will be launching a furniture collection for UK furniture company Allermuir at London Design Festival's Somerset House. The three piece collection consisting of a chair, a barstool and a small café table will be amongst many projects at the center for engaging design discussion and experiences during the anticipated design festival.

The collection, titled AXYL, is another step forward in LAYER's mission to help companies lower the environmental impact of their designs. This time around, the team focused on material selection, with recycled aluminum at the core of each piece. Recycled aluminum uses only 5% of the energy required to make new aluminum, and the additional materials you'll notice in the collection are also low-impact. Other materials include recycled wood fiber, reclaimed timber and recycled nylon. Enjoy these striking images of AXYL, and stay tuned for more London Design Festival coverage in the coming weeks.
