Allermuir’s Axyl Chair by Benjamin Hubert Is Both Timeless and Timely
Timeless and timely. Benjamin Hubert, co-founder of industrial design studio Layer, was looking to create a chair with those diametric characteristics. Allermuir was game, and so began two years of development that culminated in Axyl. A-frame typology and Danish wrap-shell construction assure the agelessness.
The material of the die-cast frame, however, is totally of today: a recycled aluminum that uses just 5 percent of the energy required to create new aluminum. It’s available in eight powder-coats, plus raw or polished aluminum. For the shell, the wood-plastic composite version comes in two colors, the two injection-molded polypropylene in six. See it at Allermuir’s showroom, booth 3-123.
