About us

 
Sign360five2.jpg
 

Brought together by a love of creativity, engineering and modern design, our team designs, manufactures and ships every piece of furniture from our shop in New Prague, MN. Inspired by both past and future, 360Five Designs aims to produce outdoor furniture that is stronger, more appealing and performs better than anything else available today. We take great pride in the fact that all of our furniture is derived from eco-friendly materials and designed to last decades. 

No one wants a chair that needs to be refinished every year or a table that needs to be brought in and out with the change of the seasons. Or least of all, one that only lasts a year, then needs to be replaced. By investing in our furniture, you'll minimize your time maintaining it, and maximize your time simply enjoying it.  Feel good knowing that you'll lower your carbon footprint and elevate not just your immediate environment, but the environment as a whole. 

 
 

 

Our story

We started our entrepreneurial journey making handmade acoustic guitars. The idea of starting with a piece of wood and ending up with a beautiful instrument was genuinely captivating. What we didn't like, was the fact that most guitar woods are disappearing, becoming increasingly hard to find due to deforestation all across the planet.

While searching for alternative materials, we came across a paper phenolic that is zero maintenance, extremely durable and responsibly made. While it didn't work for making guitars, its high strength to weight ratio and durable finish made it excellent for the production of outdoor furniture. Hence, 360Five Designs was born.

The name 360Five is derived from two fundamental concepts that we passionately believe in. Firstly, 360 represents the full circle of recycled materials we use to make our furniture. Secondly, our products will last outside and in any environment 365 days a year. Together these ideas define our brand and solidify our objective of being an eco-conscious company that produces practical yet beautiful outdoor furnishings.

Today, our small but dynamic team designs, prototypes and builds each and every piece of furniture we offer. It is our greatest passion to provide people with high quality, modern, simply designed, and durable outdoor furniture. It is our goal to create furniture that gives everyone a practical and elegant way to "Elevate Your Environment".

 
 

 

Materials

It's important to us to use eco-friendly, zero maintenance materials for all of our furniture.  High density polyethylene panels are made from recycled plastic, such as milk jugs, garbage containers, detergent bottles and margarine tubs that have been broken down and re-formed. Even once made into furniture, the plastic can be broken down and reused again. 

The wood grain phenolic we use, is made from numerous sheets of FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified craft fiber paper.  The sheets are submerged into an epoxy bath, stacked and pressed together with extreme heat and pressure.  By doing this, it thermally fuses with phenolic resins to form a high strength solid panel that is resistant to burning and does not emit formaldehyde. It can even be used as a steel replacement. 

Both materials are made in the USA and are so durable that a light scrub with some soap and water is all our furniture will ever need.
