Spanish contract furniture brand Andreu World has launched its first collaboration with Benjamin Hubert and his London design studio, Layer. Evoking the swirling motion of the toy hoop after which it was named, Hula features an asymmetrical footrest that lends a playful touch to a minimal and otherwise very symmetrical piece. The perfectly round seat seamlessly joins a base that is its mirror image, with the height-adjustable stool’s swivelling functionality hidden within the stem.
Intended for hospitality settings, Hula was created with sustainability in mind. The durable, die-cast aluminum stool is built to stand up to a decade or more of commercial use. And it is made to easily disassemble at the end of its life so the aluminum can be recycled. Currently available in 10 neutral and pastel shades, Hula is also offered with a cushioned seat, an option that is complemented by a range of upholstery choices from Kvadrat.
