THE STORY BEHIND THE YHDESSÄ TABLE
I had a dream to bring something completely new to the Finnish decor. A table, around which everybody can gather. A round table with a rotating middle part. A rotating table. This is how everybody, small or big, are able to reach. Everything is close. That’s why the name of this table is Yhdessä, meaning together.
The thought about this table has been in my mind for a long time, actually since 1993, when I first visited my in-laws. They had a table like this. It was made by my father-in-law, for his family. Back then, I thought that this genius table had to be brought out for everybody to enjoy, to homes, to kindergartens and to restaurants. Years passed, I got married and had a child. Everything regarding decoration and building new things, interested me. I had a blog and I followed the design and decoration industry carefully. I learned a lot. I learned that practicality and beauty can be in the same product. That’s when we talk about a working product. This table is a masterpiece of the Finnish technical knowledge. It’s 2017 and it’s time to get this table out to the world. As the designer of this table, I am very proud of it. Let’s get together and enjoy something completely new.
