Canopy is a close collaboration with RÆBURN, a fashion brand that shares our passion for responsible design.

Close Collaboration

LAYER has translated RÆBURN’s use of upcycled parachute material in fashion into an exciting exploration of materiality in furniture. The collection comprises four rocking chairs and two screens made from welded steel frames with upcycled parachute upholstery.

The simple steel structures provide a “blank canvas” for the textile, allowing it to be the most expressive element. The fabric has been wrapped, slung and hung within the framework to create padding, webbing and cover solutions with simple fixation points.

Our Role

Canopy is a project defined by its collaborative nature. LAYER designed the collection, taking inspiration from the materiality and expression of iconic RAEBURN fashion range. We then worked with leading British furniture brand Allermuir to prototype and manufacture the frames, while RAEBURN’s talented production team crafted the textile elements.

We take inspiration from a diverse range of creative industries and value the opportunity to explore new approaches
