Roofer * benjamin hubert

‘Roofer’ by benjamin hubert for Fabbian
Comprising a system of coloured silicon tiles and differently shaped steel frames, ‘roofer’ by british designer benjamin hubert
for italian lighting manufacturers fabbian involves the consumer in the design process of the pendant lamps. 

the tiles, modeled loosely after those composing roofs throughout morocco, are manufactured from a flexible silicon polymer.
the material is produced in different colours, and while it appears essentially opaque, permits some passage of light.

a range of differently shaped steel frameworks provide the base on which each tile is clipped. users can adjust the spacing
of the tiles and arrange and rearrange their different colours to create custom, ever-modifiable pieces.
