Hush is a felt seating pod handcrafted entirely from biodegradable materials, which users can crawl into to work or rest in private.
"By creating an enclosed space, Hush provides a personal retreat, a luxurious escape into a dark, hushed, natural space in the midst of a busy hotel, airport, office or library," explains British designer Freyja Sewell.
The main body of HUSH is cut from a single piece of 10mm industrial wool felt. Wool is naturally flame retardant, breathable, durable and elastic; it is also multi-climatic, meaning it is warm when the environment is cold and cool when it’s warm. It is of course biodegradable and so won’t clog up landfill after disposal. It is produced sustainably from animals out in the open, with each sheep producing a new fleece each year. The internal padding of HUSH is made from recycled wool fibers, produced as a by-product of the British carpet industry.
Freyja Sewell set out to create a private space within a public world, handmade from natural, biodegradable materials. Three years in the making, HUSH is now available for purchase.
Open plan offices and public buildings, online profile sharing, cameras built into our laptops; never has it been easier for humans to connect, but what about when we want to withdraw? It is essential to continue to develop new ways of allowing people to comfortably co-exist in our increasingly densely populated environments.
By creating an enclosed space HUSH provides a personal retreat, a luxurious escape into a dark, hushed, natural space in the midst of a busy hotel, airport, office or library. HUSH provided a quiet space in an age of exponential population growth, where privacy and peaceful respite is an increasingly precious commodity.

SHEEP RUGS | Vacht Van Vilt - This amazing ethical company sources wool from small local farms only. They collect it personally to ensure quality and transparency in the well-being of the sheep. Unfortunately, over the last years sheep wool increasingly became a waste product. We need to make sure that this wonderful sustainable product will not become waste.
The leather free rugs are all handmade in Holland and felted with organic olive soap. Because the rugs are made from sheared wool, the artisan can make a rug every year from each sheep. It is a sustainable and honest product. At the back of the rug there's a felted rag of carded (combed) wool. This helps the rug to remain firmly together. These rags are carded from the artisan's own wool, confirming the sheep's origin and good treatment. Once there's enough carded wool for a rug, the rag is put on on shaved sheep wool. Now the felting begins, which is a lot of work! With water, soap and friction the wool fibers attach themselves to each other. After felting, the rug is thoroughly washed. When the rug is dry and clean, an authenticity stamp is sewn on. Each rug has it's own number, and is unique! The rugs come with their own custom-made bag.
