Antrei Hartikainen is one of the designers I keep bumping into after first meeting him over dinner in Helsinki some years ago. I have been following him ever since, as I think Finnish design really has something different from all other Scandinavian design and I like it a lot! At Ambiente earlier this year he already told me about the furniture he was designing and I love seeing the result. The ‘Bastone’ collection Antrai designed for POIAT Products Oy consist of a cabinet and a sideboard.
Antrei: “The Bastone collection moves naturally in the frontier of art and design, and showcases filtered light and reflections of shades as well appreciation of craftsmanship. The exterior of both the cabinet and the sideboard are partly open, partly covered by round and narrow strips of wood.”
