Milan Furniture Fair 2023

18–23 April
Salone Satellite
C 09

The collection for Salone Satellite 2023 is an aspiration to find the interface between minimalism and maximalism; when a piece of furniture is too much to be called minimalistic and not enough to be maximalist?

Inspired by the city, pop art, and neon yellow color, the furniture designs showcase an edgy and refined aesthetic with wood as the primary material. The collection comprises original, commercially feasible pieces that challenge traditional boundaries with a current yet timeless style.



Pehku is a daybed for different spaces. the cylinder-shaped pillows function as backrests when sitting or as pillows when napping. The structure is strong and enables efficient production, packing and shipping. The assembly is hidden inside the wooden frame and there are no visible attachments.

Baby is a small but robust sofa table that stands on its own four ellipse-shaped feet. The tabletop consists of four squircle-shaped blocks that are unequal in size and color. Hopefully one day Baby will grow into a collection of different sized tables for multiple purposes.

Your belongings are safe inside the Bunker. The cabinet is inspired by a brutalist concrete building called Bunkkeri in Jätkäsaari neighborhood in Helsinki. The design is a play of proportions and contrasts between the discreet drawer and the striking top part.
