Milan 2012 Preview: APRIL Tables by Alfredo Häberli
Finnish leading wood design company Nikari has launched the APRIL tables by Swiss designer Alfredo Häberli. APRIL is part of the year-long project 2012 DESIGNS FOR NATURE, which tells about Nikari philosophy and wood design ideology: how they delicately manufacture exquisite quality furniture and products of the local forests’ wood in Fiskars Village.
Because number 12 is the number of the year (it is the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 year, so definitely worth celebrating) and there are 12 months in a year, NIKARI asked twelve designers or design studios to study their philosophy and give comments to it in a form of a wooden product. The project is done in co-operation with WWF Finland and part of the sales price is donated to protecting rainforests and forests globally.
The April Collection will be exhibited during Salone del Mobile 2012 at “2012 Finnish Design”
STUDIO DESIGN GALLERY Kristiina Lassus, Via Soperga 18, Milan.
