The Bastone furniture collection for Poiat Studio was designed by master cabinet maker and young Finnish designer of the year 2018, Antrei Hartikainen.
The collection consists of a cabinet and a sideboard. Moving naturally in the frontier of art and design, the partly open structure enables the filtering of light and reflections of shadows.
Antrei Hartikainen’s award-winning pieces, including functional products and pure artworks, achieve heights of sensuality, elegance and craftsmanship. These important factors are emphasised in Hartikainen’s work, which constantly seeks to challenge and blur the traditional categorisations of functional objects and visual arts. Hartikainen’s sculptural approach can be seen in his organic body of work, which simultaneously highlights the inspiration drawn from his material of choice, wood.
