Isolyn

by Ami Kealoha in Design on 15 June 2006

Isolyn for their texture-heavy rugs that blend in felted cocoons and bubbles with sustainable materials like leather, sheepskin, and wool. The protruding forms also make for unexpected foot and body massages, and since head designer Michelle Butler once competed in synchronized ice-skating, we'll trust that she knows all about foot relief.

The British company was featured at the recent ICFF show in New York and made quite an impression with their highly customizable collection of rugs, ottomans, throws, and commissioned work, like a sofa made out of flexible cubic cushions. Among the most fun and interactive products were the colorful felt flowers attached to magnets, which make a wall hanging suited to easy and frequent rearrangement.
