Made By Choice bench /coffee table.
The Airisto bench, designed by Joanna Laajisto for the Finnish company Made By Choice, has soft, rounded shapes and an asymmetrical foot structure. Made from durable ash wood, this minimalist and versatile stool / bench can also be used as a side table.
The Airisto collection was originally designed for the Villa Airisto guest house in the southwestern archipelago of Finland. The design reflects tones of the carefree atmosphere of the old Scandinavian summer villa culture. Airisto's flowing, organic shapes will complement modern city houses as well as traditional villas and summer houses.
Made By Choice collections are manufactured in the company's own factory in Halikko, Finland.
