Description

The Aallokko cushion, designed by Reeta Ek for Lapuan Kankurit, features a lovely pattern depicting waves. That's also where the cushion's name comes from: Aallokko is Finnish for “waves” or “swell”. Lapuan Kankurit donates part of the proceeds of the Aallokko cushions to the John Nurminen Foundation, whose Clean Baltic Sea project supports the well-being of the Baltic Sea – so that future generations can also enjoy its waves.

The small cushion is woven in Finland and filled with fire-resistant wadding to make it suitable for use in the sauna. You can use it to rest your head or to support your back while sitting on the bench, enjoying the relaxing warmth or steam. Some also like to lie down and use the cushion as a pillow, but it's important not to fall asleep in the hot sauna.

Reeta Ek

Reeta Ek (b.1979) is an artist, who holds a Master’s degree in textile art from the Aalto University in Helsinki. She has worked as a textile designer for companies like Marimekko, Nanso and Lapuan Kankurit. Ek finds inspiration for her work from things in everyday life, rhythm and colors. According to Ek: ”Good ideas are often born in the morning by a cup of coffee and browsing the newspaper. However, you can’t sit down and wait for the inspiration to come, but it evolves and grows by doing, and also through mistakes.” Reeta Ek won the Young Designer of the Year prize in September 2017.
