Here's a little text from the designer:


THE FINNSIH BLOOD IN ME

A collection inspired, and interpreted of childhood memories from Finland.

The armature – WORKSHOP is a reminder from all the workshops and the STOOL from the department store that we visited.

A collection where material and detail are in focus.

Nothing strange or conceptual, just memories and function.

    Innovative modern design, great multi-functional pieces which can find their own corner in a small or even a large living space.

    They can be the main piece or only complete the modern design of the room.

    The chair is nearly good, but oddly complex and unresolved.

  • douglas

    the stool is fantastic! Quite original aesthetic – which is difficult to achieve.

    • bradley stryder

      does it not remind of the bouroullec steel wood series?

      • woody steelpecker

        yeah right, because its made out of steel and wood?

  • roberto;)

    the chair is really nice but the layering of the backrest destroyed it. overdone
