Who says a home office can't have a little fun? Søren Rose Studio (one of our personal favorite furniture makers) introduces the Gymnasium Collection, chock-full of colorful strokes and a touch of Danish modernism.

Søren Rose Studio has been known for creating sustainable, eco-conscious, socially responsible designs.

Here's a pretty nifty quote from the designer behind the furniture:

Remember the hardwood? The squeak of a sneaker. The sound of the whistle. That last second shot. The Gymnasium Collection takes its inspiration from a simpler time in our lives when victories were measured on scoreboards and teamwork wasn't just for meetings.

The first incarnation of this line was launched in 2008 with our High School History Lesson series. Created from recycled gym floorboards, this limited edition collection used the graphic lines and simple silhouettes of the court to pay tribute to the simplicity and spirit of sport.

Today, it reinvents itself as Gymnasium, a mass-produced series that uses sustainable, eco-friendly materials like renewable pine and controlled Danish oak with water-based fixatives and varnishes. The result is a brilliant series, sold globally by Mater and crafted by Denmark's oldest cabinet makers Bruno Hansen Carpentry.

Like its predecessor, Gymnasium honors its past while investing in the future. For every piece purchased, Mater donates a percentage of the profits to promoting sports in developing countries, allowing a new generation to be inspired to play and create.

Get a closer look at the collection over here. It's available for purchase over at Mater Design.
