Benjamin Hubert studied Industrial Design and Technology at Loughborough University and graduated with distinction in 2006.
In 2007 he founded the Benjamin Hubert Design Studio in London, with a focus on designing furniture and lamps in cooperation with international manufacturers based in Europe and Asia.
In every design project he first carefully examines and challenges the materials and production processes used. Collaboration with a tight network of craftsmen, model shops and manufacturers serves Benjamin Hubert and his team as a direct source of inspiration.
Hubert designs timeless objects that do not follow trends but are based instead on a close analysis of usage habits, materials and sustainability and are hence developed in a process of visual reduction. The studio devotes itself to a broad range of projects, from one-offs or limited edition pieces to series-produced consumer items. Its clients include Magis, Authentics, Fabbian, Kundalini and Casamania.
Benjamin Hubert’s work has received international critical and media acclaim and has been widely exhibited and recognised with various awards including Design of the Year (British Design Awards 2010), Best Product (100% Design / blueprint awards 2009), Homes and Gardens Young Designer of the Year (Design Classic Awards 2010) and the EDIDA Award in 2010 as International Young Designer of the Year.
