Designer Tapio Anttila on a regular Tuesday. No Photoshop.
The world is in a state of change. Everything we do must be justified. One has to find a purpose for existence, that big “why”.
As a furniture designer, this purpose has always been an everyday routine for me, like my morning swim in the nearby lake. With or without ice.
I create objects that have a place in everyday life to make it more meaningful, more beautiful and last a lifetime. Furniture and products that bring something innovative and new, not just replicate the old. Objects that respect a person and their environment that do not try to buy their soul by some other questionable means.
I am Finnish, but also Scandinavian and Nordic. The Nordic Way is a way of working that combines the sensibility and longevity of objects with a unique peculiarity in the mix. For us and the wider world there is an ever growing call for this combination and way of thinking.
The novelty of the JAT-KO product series offers a practical solution for working from home. The new Jat-ko desk functionally resembles a traditional bureau, but offers a modern workstation for the home office.
