The Canopy Collection uses the strict geometry of the steel frames as a base on which to experiment with innovative and forward-thinking recycled parachute
upholstery. Each of the four rocking chairs – which all have the same framework – showcases a different quality of the parachute material, from a highly-
controlled and simple expression to a raw, sculptural form. The construction of the steel frame reflects the expression of the parachute material: in the more minimal format, the frame is polished and finely finished, whilst in the most expressive format, the welded joins are left unfinished and the steel remains in a raw state that showcases the production process.
“At the core of the RÆBURN brand is our Remade in England approach; in our tenth year it’s been an honour to partner with LAYER on the Canopy Collection which has resulted in a truly unique opportunity for both brands to test, learn and ultimately achieve a project that’s as unexpected as it is experimental. With craft, creativity and quality at the heart of the partnership it’s been fantastic to work directly alongside Benjamin Hubert and his talented team to bring new materials and methods of make to the collaborative collection” — Christopher Raeburn
