Freestanding Latva coat rack by Covo brings joy with its fresh, white colour and organic shape resembling branches of a tree – ”latva” is Finnish for treetop. Created by Finnish designer Mikko Laakkonen, the Latva coat rack gained attention at Milano Furniture Fair 2006, and soon the Italian brand Covo took Latva to its collection. Besides a functional and sturdy steel rack, Latva is also a sculptural décor element, and placing several coat racks in a row will create a thicket-like space divider. Covo’s Latva coat racks bring a fresh breeze of Scandinavian design to the hallway or dressing room, and also spice up public spaces in a smart way.

Mikko Laakkonen (b. 1974) is a Finnish designer specialized in furniture and product design. He studied design at the Kymenlaakso Polytechnic (Bachelors of Arts degree) and at University of Arts and Design Helsinki (Master of Arts degree). Mikko Laakkonen has created products for several clients, including Covo, Selki-Asema, Offecct, Inno and Marimekko.
His products are original, innovative and high quality. One of his most famous products is Latva, a collection of wall and floor coatracks in different colours. Latva was shown at the Milan Furniture Fair 2006 and when the company Covo saw the Latva coatrack they decided to take it into production right away. Latva is a Finnish word that means tree top and these coatracks look like beautiful and sculptural tree tops that will decorate the house and can be used also as a room divider. You can put your belongings on Latva’s branches or leave it empty, like a beautiful sculpture. You can also put several Latva coat racks in a row and this way you will create a thicket like space divider, perfect in any room. The wall version of Latva coatrack is a tribute to traditional wood decoration of the Nordic countries.
Mikko Laakkonen works with various national and international clients and his projects are mainly in the field of furniture design, product design or interior architecture. Another functional and at the same time elegant product is Vege pan, a cast iron pan with handle made of birch, designed for Selki-Asema. The Vege pan has a floral pattern on it which will create a nice decoration on the food cooked in the cast iron pan. In 2010 Mikko Laakkonen designed Lumme office containers for Marimekko. The designer has participated in many exhibitions, including Milan Furniture Fair and Helsinki Design Week, and was nominated Young Designer of the Year 2009.View all products

”I ordered a HAY side table that was on back order everywhere else. It was a few hundred crowns more at Finnish Design Shop, but shipped the next day and was delivered to my door two days later, which I think was worth the extra cost. It came well-packaged, protected and the item is in perfect condition. I’m happy and would shop here again.”
