The tiny Finnish furnishings business Habitek was 1 of the many we became acquainted with lately on our trip to Helsinki for Design and style Week. In organization because 2000, Habitek prides itself on a modest inventory of “beautiful, extremely-functional and versatile simple furnishings pieces that invite their users to locate inspired applications at residence and operate.”
The organization’s signature pieces stay Morris tables, a series of asymmetrically-shaped coffee and dining tables created by Finnish architect Kirsi Gullichsen in 2005. Gullichsen reportedly identified inspiration for the oak-and-laminate series of 5 seemingly random shapes in the movements of her dachshund, Morris. Word is that Morris approves of them, too.
