The Lavitta collection by Poiat Products comprises a chair, a small occasional table, a round dining table and a rectangular table with benches.

The chairs are not stackable by can be slotted into each other for storage and are actually made from several pieces of plywood to reduce wastage. "The aim was to make the glued joint invisible and still keep the original visual outlook of two structural parts," the designers explain.

They're currently developing an upholstered version of the chair and a lower lounge-seat version.

The tables have veneered wood or laminate tops on solid wooden legs with powder-coated metal connectors.

Poiat Products is a new venture from Poiat architecture and design studio, which was founded by Antti Rouhunkoski, Timo Mikkonen and Marco Rodriguez after they met at the University of Arts and Design in Helsinki, now part of Aalto University.

Other furniture collections we've featured lately include pieces by Nendo that look like they've been peeled away from wooden stems and a pine and aluminium chair and table for an art museum in New York.
