Spinning Light BH2
The sleek Spinning Light BH2 pendant from &Tradition is sure to become a new classic. Form truly meets function in an innovative way. The joyful form of the Spinning Light is inspired by a childhood favourite, a spinning-top toy, and the process of metal spinning.
As a designer, Benjamin Hubert is always curious to find new solutions and materials, often stopping to feel the texture on a piece of furniture or feeling the weight of an old glass vase. "I try not to look too much at what other people are doing, otherwise its very difficult to do anything truly new", says British designer Benjamin Hubert (born 1984). His multiple award-winning lighting and furniture are material led and process driven, bringing simplicity and functionality in a natural equilibrium. This approach pays respect to the usual classic suspects, such as Charles Eames and Dieter Rams. By trying to create a design philosophy of his own, Benjamin Hubert is indeed a true designer.
After graduating from Loughborough University in 2006, Benjamin Hubert's final year project 'Puff out lights' won the Corus materials prize at New Designers, received short-listings in two other awards, and won Best Graduating Designer of the Year at the Hub Class of 2006. Though short in years, the list of awards and prices is very long, including Blueprint 100% Design Best New Product 2009, Design of the Year/British Design Awards 2009 and Elle Decor British Design of the Year 2009. Only few designers accomplish so much in such a short time and even before turning 25. This is not least thanks to his fascination with materials, including ceramic, wood and cork, Benjamin Hubert is already an established name in the world of design. Creating new objects means doing things that are relevant and innovative in aesthetics, functionality or materials. With the goal set to create happiness with his design, there are surely many more smiles to come from his hand.
Craft meets art. Function meets form. Material meets potential. This is our Nordic tradition and heritage. &Tradition aims to bridge these values to contemporary design, reshaping, redefining and reinventing materials, techniques and forms. &Tradition covers the masters of yesterday, the leading designers of today and the talent who may create the classics of the future. We scout for design talent and handpick production facilities globally. But our roots are still Nordic. We respect nature that provide our raw materials, and we believe in design that is made to last.
