Freyja Sewell’s work has an inherent sustainability. Often working with materials that are natural or biodegradable, she takes an experimental approach to product development. Her long term aim is to reduce consumption by making sustainable, long-lasting products which are available on the mass market – and at an affordable price.

British designer Freyja Sewell’s kooky felt cocoons hit the limelight at a 2013 London design show, and Hush is now in production in Durham. Constructed from biodegradable materials, with the outer shell in wool felt and the internal padding made from recycled wool fibres discarded by carpet manufacturers, it provides “a luxurious escape into a hushed, natural space”. The pod can also be collapsed to transform it into “a beanbag-like armchair” that enfolds the sitter.

Take a look on this beautiful and flexibale product.

Details: An enclosed space that provides a personal retreat, Hush is “a luxurious escape into a dark, hushed, natural space in the midst of a busy hotel, airport, office or library” says Sewell.  freyjasewell-hush-2  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 2 freyjasewell-hush-3  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 3 freyjasewell-hush-4  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 4 freyjasewell-hush-5  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 5 freyjasewell-hush-6  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 6 freyjasewell-hush-7  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 7

Hush is cut from a single piece of biodegradable and sustainably produced 10mm industrial wool felt, a material that is multi-climatic, warm when the environment is cold and cool when it’s warm. Internal padding is made from recycled wool fibers, produced as a by-product of the British carpet industry. Manufactured in Durham, UK by Ness Furniture. freyjasewell-hush-8  BEST PRODUCT DESIGNER: FREYJA SEWELL freyjasewell hush 8
