CARPET “TIG-HU� 2010 autumn Pattern for the carpet is inspired by hungarian snails, whom we met during our hitchhiking trip in Europe. These white and brown snails were enjoying the sun near lake Balaton. One of them was travelling back to Estonia with us- to be part of our biologist friends private collection.

CHAIR “Lebo” 2013 autumn Cooperation project with Reela Nigul, Rainer Klement and Maria Kuusik Photo : Jüri Seredenko Supervisors : Aet Ollisaar, Liina Kool and Jaak Roosi Material : Plywood, wool and linen Sharp forms create contrast against the soft tufted surface. The tufted material has two different colors which you can combine by turning it around. This allows one to change the whole appearance of the chair. We created a lazy chair, where you can relax and lounge. The seat’s joints are glue-free which make it easy to dismantle, pack and transport.
