- Airisto bench / side table, ash
The Airisto bench, designed by Joanna Laajisto for the Finnish design house Made By Choice, features soft, rounded shapes and an asymmetrical foot structure. Made of durable ash wood, the minimalist and versatile stool can also be used as a side table.
The Airisto collection was originally designed for the Villa Airisto guesthouse located at the Southwestern archipelago of Finland. Its design echoes notes from the carefree atmosphere of old Scandinavian summer villa culture. Airisto's flowing, organic shapes will complement both, contemporary urban homes as well as traditional villas and summer houses. Made By Choice’s collections are manufactured at the company’s own factory in Halikko, Finland.
