Sports Furniture Collection by Florian Hauswirth and Thomas Walde

We've had a few posts covering design-conscious exercise equipment (Antonio Citterio's Kinesis Personal and Ionic Column Dumbbells). While these examples were either extravagant or silly, the Sports Furniture Collection from designers Florian Hauswirth and Thomas Walde (part of the Swiss design collective, PostFossil) sticks to simple design that looks good...

Sports Furniture straddles the line between fitness equipment and decor. The designers use traditional materials and design products that serve a dual purpose: the chin-up bar is also a place to hang clothes, the felt and leather yoga mat doubles as a rug, and the oak bench is attractive enough for the living room. (the designers lost us on the jump-rope and cup, though) Via: Freshome.
