Amsterdam – Design studio H-O-TT's conceptual furniture range doubles as fitness equipment for homebodies.
The Furfit collection presents five ways that furniture could serve a dual purpose as gym equipment, opening up the potential of home workouts for people with limited living space. The designs include a high stool that can be turned on its side and used as a curl barbell and a side table that doubles as a kettlebell.
With gyms remaining closed in many countries, Furfit is a response to the rise in makeshift at-home gym kit, taking instead a design-centric approach. Luca Beltrame, founder of H-O-TT, explains: ‘Living in a typical Dutch apartment, the space to work out wasn't generous, so we started to think about a way to upscale our living room and find an active use for the pieces of furniture that were otherwise limiting our movements.’
People’s home environments have taken on new purposes during the pandemic, prompting a wave of Fulfilment Furnishings that place wellbeing at the fore.
