Italian brand Mososo has unveiled its latest collaboration with designer Benjamin Hubert, a modular furniture collection featuring textile offcuts bound together by colourful sports tape.
The collection, called Tape, includes building blocks of different shapes and sizes that you can use as sofas with back and armrests, as well as stools. Each block is upholstered in panels of textile offcuts that are joined with polyurethane tape, normally used to bond extreme sportswear. The tape draws the outline around each block, running along the edges and dividing the sides into smaller panels. The arm modules have pockets made of a piece of fabric that’s taped along three sides, leaving the top edge open.
Born in the UK in 1984, Benjamin Hubert studied at Loughborough University and graduated in 2006 with a degree in Industrial Design and Technology. He founded his studio in 2007 in London. The studio specializes in materials-driven, process-led, industrial design across furniture and lighting sectors working with international manufacturers in Europe. Hubert works on a wide range of projects including both mass and batch produced consumer products and limited editions. Hubert has received international critical and media acclaim and has been exhibited internationally receiving a number of prestigious awards.
