The HUSSL collection draws inspiration from one of the world’s most beautiful natural environments, resulting in a seamless fusion of top quality workmanship and stunning organic forms.

The mountains of the Austrian Tyrol are picture perfect. The epitome of beautiful Alpine scenery, pearl-white snow falls generously over the ranges in the Winter, which protect the natural landscape of the Hohe Tauern to the south, as well the Grossglockner – Austria’s highest peak.
But, for brother and sister designers Peter and Beate Hussl, the magnificent landscape is something more. It’s home.
Together, the pair is the talent behind HUSSL, a family owned design practice with a rich 38-year history. The village they call home, 20km out of Innsbruck and less than 2000 people strong, is simple and beautiful – qualities which are imbued into the craftsmanship of HUSSL’s designs.
When Peter and Beate’s father ran HUSSL, the firm focussed solely on chair manufacture. In 1994, a new chapter was written when Peter Hussl began collaborating with architects and designers to expand his collection. Today, assisted by the pair’s nature-inspired touch, the brand has grown to encompass a wide range of tables and chairs for various settings.
In practice, HUSSL’s design style exemplifies a clean, crisp aesthetic. As seen in the ST6N chair, neutral and muted tones are favoured, along with thin, free-flowing forms.
A natural, organic approach has again been taken through the delicate use of wood and leather in the ‘Forum 2’ chair. The chair’s soft sitting surface and elegant yet strong frame flow seamlessly together, resulting in a beautiful and classic design piece.
A selection of HUSSL furniture is available locally through Café Culture + Insitu, providing a new narrative of durability for the HUSSL brand, as products remain just at home in the outback, as the Alps.
