Technological textiles

At layer we examine how the form, format and materiality of traditional product typologies can be re-imagined to enhance their everyday performance.

The Cradle collection is a unique blend of two typologies of seating – a net structured hammock and a conventional upholstered lounge chair. The range utilizes a new high performance three-dimensional stretch textile developed by Layer in close collaboration with an Austrian textile factory. The knitted textile has high strength but low density, delivering the necessary ergonomic support for the body using a fraction of the material of a traditional mesh.
