LAYER X Moroso Tape Modular Sofa

View all 14 Photos

A marriage of innovation and refined design.

Benjamin Hubert, founder of LAYER Design, has a distinct style that makes his product and furniture designs stand apart from others. Minimal and often slightly futuristic, they inspire users and beautify spaces at the same time. The creative designer’s latest collaboration follows the same path. Created for renowned Italian company Moroso, the Tape modular sofa marks the eighth collab between Hubert and the furniture brand. After twelve months of development, the sofa made its debut alongside the rest of the Tape collection at the Moroso stand during Salone del Mobile in Milan, April 2018. Refined and sophisticated, the sofa has an elegant design that brings together minimalism, clean lines and stylish color combinations.

More than just a chic piece of furniture, the modular sofa features the collection’s signature manufacturing technique which draws inspiration from the use of tape in the crafting of ski and snowboarding gear. Here, polyurethane tape bonds smaller pieces of textile. An ingenious solution to use discarded materials that would otherwise become waste. In a partnership with a technical garment manufacturer, LAYER developed the tape technology for specific use in furniture. Thanks to advanced heat-bonding machinery, the studio crafted the first prototype in-house, in the UK. For the ultimate touch of quality, the sofa boasts Kvadrat upholstery in a variety of neutral and brighter colors. Thin strips of contrasting tape highlight the shape of the modules while creating a subtle geometric pattern. Photographs© LAYER Design, Moroso.
