Description

The Remmi ottoman is designed to work together with the Remmi lounge chair, which is known as one of Yrjö Kukkapuro's most iconic and popular furniture. The minimalist ottoman combines the key elements of Kukkapuro's design philosophy: ergonomics that support the body, timeless aesthetics and high-quality ecology. Designed in 1969, the ottoman features leather upholstery and an elegant steel frame, creating a luxurious yet comfortable extra seat or resting place for the legs.

The Key Flag certified Remmi ottoman is made in Finland and all its parts, such as metal springs and cushions, can be easily repaired and renewed to achieve the longest possible life cycle. The products in the Remmi collection are part of a permanent exhibition at the world’s largest interior design museum: the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

Yrjö Kukkapuro

The Finnish furniture designer Yrjö Kukkapuro (b. 1933) is a central figure of Finnish functionalism. Kukkapuro has been working as a freelance designer since the 1950s and much of the furniture he designed at the beginning of his career is still in production today.

“Does it make any sense to design a chair which is not good to sit on?” is one of Kukkapuro’s favourite sayings and it describes perfectly the designer’s love for ergonomic furniture. His designs aim at a subtle balance between functionality and aesthetics – fine examples of this are the Karuselli chair produced by Artek, and other iconic designs such as the Saturnus table, Skaala chair, Remmi series and Ateljee lounge chair and sofa.

During his career, Kukkapuro has been awarded many national and international prizes – including the Lunning Prize in 1966, the 1st Prize at the International Chair Design Competition in Italy in 1972 and the Kaj Franck Design Prize in 1995. His works are present in the permanent collections of various museums in the world, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, MoMA in New York and Vitra Design Museum in Germany's Weil am Rhein, just to name a few.
