Benjamin Hubert was born in 1984 in the UK. Three years ago he received a degree in Industrial Design and Technology from the Loughborough University and took place in New Designers 06. His project Puff Out Lights received the Corus Material Award. Then he took part in 100% Futures 2007 and 100% Futures 2008 (part of 100% Design London), and in 2008 Hubert received Most Promising Designer award.
Within only several years he won almost 20 awards from international exhibitions and competitions. Most important for his work are the materials he uses and the way they are processed. He experiments with different raw materials, production techniques and their application, and he has learned the secrets of steel, cork, wood, clay, glass, metal, ceramics and plastic.
Today the young designer works with a number of international companies, including Foscarini, Innermost, Decode, De Vorm, Bacardi, Viaduct. They realise his ideas in the spheres of furniture, lighting and product design.
