JULY (woodcuts) is a wooden stool inspired by the intrinsic beauty of imperfection. Like a bundle of wooden logs, three individual “slices” unequal in size, variegated in grain and color, and uneven surface angles unite to create a beautiful, singular form. Each stool enjoys its own sense of individuality. Together, in multiples, they create a sculptural seating display for gathering spaces.
[Designs for nature] tells about Nikari philosophy and the Finnish wood design ideology: how Nikari delicately manufacture exquisite quality furniture and products of the local forests’ wood in Fiskars Village. Because number 12 is the number of the year and there are 12 months in a year, Nikari asked twelve designers or design studios to study Nikari’s philosophy and give their comments to it in a form of a wooden product. Nikari co-operate with the Finnish WWF and part of the sales price is donated to protecting rainforests and forests globally.
