Benjamin Hubert is an award-winning British design entrepreneur, and founder of creative agency, LAYER. LAYER is focused on experience-driven design for both the physical and digital worlds. Led by Benjamin and a growing creative team, LAYER is partnering with forward-thinking brands – including Nike, Google, Bang and Olufsen, Samsung, Braun, Fritz Hansen and Vitra– to create products that will help define the way we live, work and communicate in the future, from A.I to smart wearables and furniture systems, to the next generation of media devices and mobile communication tools.
LAYER’s focus is on creating meaningful experiences driven by extensive strategic research and human behaviors. The holistic design practice incorporates a diverse creative toolbox, including industrial design, UI/UX, mechanical and electrical engineering, branding, installation design and human-centered research.
The growing studio is currently working on projects with leading global brands – including Nike, Google, Bang and Olufsen, Samsung, Braun, Fritz Hansen and Vitra – that will help to shape how we live in the future. Aware of how design can be used as a powerful tool for positive change, Benjamin is also engaged with not-for-profit charity projects, including a collaboration with UK cancer charity, Maggie’s and the Carbon Trust.
Following five successful years of growth working with the world’s foremost interior product, luxury and consumer goods brands, Benjamin established LAYER in September 2015 as a platform to fully represent the studio’s multi- layered approach to design and its growing roster of creative partners.
