Marimekko, 2007

Kirstu is a multi-functional piece of furniture designed for Marimekko. Serving as storage chest, it can not only contain all sorts of objects, but it can also can be stacked away when it is not in use. The lid also doubles as a tray and features the classic Marhaba pattern, a well known Marimekko pattern. Made out of rigid, lightweight polyester felt, Kirstu creates a tactile, textile-like feel fitting for Marimekko. In addition, since the polyester is derived from recycled fiber, Kirstu is a sustainable product with very little waste.
