with Michael Yarinsky

Sieni, meaning mushroom in Finnish, is a collection of furnishings for flexible use in the home, office, or hospitality setting. The forms in the series allude to fungal structures - stems, hypha, caps, and gills. We invite the pieces to take root in space and spread their atmosphere. Curiously soft and hard at the same moment, the pieces beg you to be handled. In working with American designers like Matthew Day Jackson and Michael Yarinsky, we hope to merge the traditional craft and heritage of Finnish furniture making with conceptual ideas of material, form, and atmosphere.
