But Dvelas, a Pamplona-based design company, has stepped in with its innovative upcycling of used sails. A team of architects, designers and sail manufacturer transform the components into contemporary furniture and architectural spaces that are directly influenced by the shapes, construction and performance of sailboats. For example, the Barlovento y Sotavento / Windward and Leeward chair (pictured below) was inspired by the heel of a sailing boat and the counterweight produced by the crew when they sit on the other side of the boat to balance it.
