Benjamin Hubert, Milan 2011
London designer, not yet 30, with impressive portofolio of designs in international production.
Although not yet thirty, this remarkable young designer has a full portfolio of products by leading international brands. He says he is "materials driven" and "process led." Benjamin uses unusual materials to great effect like lamps made of terracotta and thin-walled marble, or terracotta, or a chair made of a new textile mesh.
I caught up with him at Milan Furniture Fair, where we took this picture in the warm sun of an Italian spring.
