Timo Hoisko has created the Farmline chair out of a single metal tube and locally-produced hemp fiber.
I believe in sustainable development, and in the design our products we should promote nature-conserving renewable materials. I wanted to design an ecological chair using locally-produced hemp fiber, a rare material in the furniture industry that I believe would create new opportunities in furniture design. Hemp fiber is an ecological material, as it is cultivated and processed locally at a near-by farm. This is carried in the name itself: ”Farmline”. Hemp fiber can be recycled thanks to its adhesive (PET), enabling us to reuse it for good instead of throwing it away: thus its life cycle does not end in the litter box, as all of its materials can be recycled and then re-introduced in production.
