The Windworks Furniture is the next step in the designer's experimentation with windmill-made products. First it involved the simple act of knitting. Then it became more complex with the fashioning of clothes. Now the windmills have been put to work to create large-scale furniture.

Designed by Merel Karhof, a product designer based in London, England, the Windworks Furniture is completely made using the energy generated by wind. From the wood and upholstery to the dyeing and knitting of the yarn, the Windworks Furniture is an impressive feat to say the least. Yet aside from the eco-friendly aspects of the collection, it is also incredibly stylish.

The basic forms found in the Windworks Furniture collection are enhanced with colorful cushions for a vibrant look.
