In March Hope and Homes for Children held the annual Night of Adventure at UCL's Institute of Education in London. The sell-out event hosts a series of adventurers, from Ben Saunders who retraced Captain Scotts Antarctic expedition to Dan Start, who out of frustration with being stuck in a hot London office, decided to start writing about wild swimming in the UK. The event captured our imagination, including Alastair Humphreys' presentation in micro-adventures; get outside, go beyond the first mile and explore your local surroundings.
With his words ringing in our ears, we decided to discover more of Dorset and Hampshire, taking along the iconic Compas chair by Kristalia for company. The chair designed by the French designer Patrick Norguet, which in itself is inspired by the form of a compass shape, sits beautifully with the natural environment. The chair is suitable for indoor and outdoor use, produced in a range of colours. Next week Kristalia is introducing the two-colour version at the Milan Furniture Fair.
The Compas chair is part of the Hope and Homes for Children collection. When you buy a Compas chair online from our e-shop, not only do you get free shipping, but you also help children across Europe and Africa find loving homes.
