This multi-talented design team can manage their own projects and design methods thanks to the diversity of design levels and areas between them. Considering this is their first home furniture collection launch Hypha has impressed the design world, which is a great start for this studio. The style has an urban, modern edge that would look cool on any outdoor patio, or on any floor space with the right accessories and decor.
Each piece structure is based on a steel tube that is manipulated into the required shape. Depending on the furniture piece, either the collection is covered in a unique textile that resembles woven ropes or a powder coating that gives it a contemporary feel while giving each piece a unique personality. This coating also offers protection from the elements making the collection suitable for the outdoor patio or for the home as indoor furniture.

You could easy find yourself dreaming of the summer and patio parties etc. while viewing the images.
Rope Furniture by German Designer Angelika Hess
German designer Angelika Hess is located in Rosenheim near the Alps, where many local sports enthusiasts enjoy rock climbing; this led her to ask, “What happens to all those climbing ropes after they have lived out their load-bearing lifecycle?”
Over time, the ropes need to be changed for safety reasons, and the old ones are often relegated to climbers’ garages, so she decided to give this strong and colorful material a second life by turning the old ropes into fun modern furniture. Hess’ comfortable handmade furnishings invite users to play and explore new ways of interacting with them – the versatile pieces can serve as chaise lounges, mats, day beds, and more!
Farming is a series of handmade furniture in a crocheted hemp twine and with oak-wood details designed by Sampling architects and presented to Biennale Interieur 2012, in Kortrijk, Belgium.
The concept of this collection is a mutation of volumes that evolve from a traditional piece of furniture. The creations assume forms that relate with nature, landscape elements and animal world, although there are no explicit references to that.
