The Kostea cutlery stand is a handmade ceramic dish for storing and drying cutlery. The unfinished look of the handmade cutlery stand is bold and sincere – perfect for createing an unassuming, laid-back atmosphere in the kitchen. The cutlery stand, designed and handcrafted by by Leena Kouhia, has drainage holes on its bottom and can also be used as a flower pot. Because the Kostea cutlery stand is handmade, each individual stand has a slightly different shape and hue.

Kostea is part of the LOKAL x FDS collection, a collaboration created to spotlight local artisans and designers who perhaps are a little more unknown to the general public. Curated by Lokal Helsinki and Finnish Design Shop, the collection consists of unique, locally-manufactured products made in small-scale production, many even by hand in the designers' own workshops.
