Bench Joki

JOKI is Finnish for river, which inspired the bench’s form. Its contours of varying heights and widths allow various sitting postures for both children and adults of all shapes and sizes. Each JOKI set consists of four seats although several sets may be conjoined, as both of its extreme ends are modular. The bench’s seats may also be used independently.
Without giving too much away, JOKI comes in a rich lacquer finish.
This Joki bench is Made from birch plywood and is very suitable for large indoor spaces. Made to Order and in limited quantity.

KAYIWA’s portfolio is diverse – ranging from furniture to housewares. With a witty yet elegant disregard for convention, the studio’s collectibles are exquisite sculptures in their own right. At the same time, KAYIWA is passionate about fusing art with design to create functional solutions for everyday needs. The resulting limited edition objets d’art are genuine collectors’ items, which continue to appreciate in value over time.
For our most discerning clientele, KAYIWA offers customized service. All the existing works may be commissioned in a range of colors, sizes, material and finishes to create personalized, one-off pieces. Likewise, our atelier can also make a completely new creation made to the client’s exact specifications.
KAYIWA’s Finnish-Ugandan designer/artist borrows principles and aesthetic elements from the rich cultures and traditions of African and Nordic art, craft and design. His creations acquire a story and become a heritage to pass down to the next generation.

Each artifact balances the latest technology with the best of artisan skill. All the works are realized with very high standards, and we guarantee that they will perform well for many years. Accordingly, we warranty all our collectibles against manufacturing defects in material and workmanship for a minimum period of 10 years.
