Three leading Finnish design companies, Poiat, Saari and SAAS Instruments, have combined their strengths in a new living concept launched at Stockholm Furniture Fair earlier this week.
The holistic living concept consists of new products from the Poiat furniture collection, Saari’s Harmon fixed furniture and kitchen concept designed by Poiat and SAAS Instrument lights. The products are combined in the display to create a uniform spatial vision.
Poiat is a Helsinki-based design studio specialising in multiple design fields. The studio engages in varied projects in the fields of architecture, interior design and furniture design, combining industrial manufacturing methods with skilled Finnish craftsmanship.
The studio is also known for its seamless collaboration with leading Finnish designers and design companies, which has resulted in unique interiors and furniture. Amongst the studio’s work is the award-winning collection Bastone, which has been featured in the design media and The New York Times.
“Harmon Furniture Pavilion provides a holistic furniture environment that brings out the capabilities of our design companies at their best,” says Timo Mikkonen, Co-founder and Head Designer of Poiat.
He added, “The pavilion is an optimal setting for us, allowing us to present our combined expertise and products from different fields, which combine to create our shared fantasy for living. Poiat, Saari and SAAS Instruments all focus on projects that feature vision, craftsmanship and made-to-order products.”
The home-like pavilion introduces a combination of kitchen, living room, bathroom and walk-in closet; the structure is based on Saari’s Harmon fixed furniture set. The client can easily build a functional and visually balanced interior with this set.
The Harmon concept launched at SFF2023 is designed by Poiat and renders Saari’s mission to meet every requirement for aesthetic design, functionality, quality and craftsmanship. In combination with a balanced design, natural materials, solid oak, and Finnish granite create a harmonious and unique space.
“We work with the best Finnish experts in varied types of projects. The Harmon fixed furniture set at the pavilion, produced with Poiat and SAAS Instruments, is a good example of our modifiable products that help clients build unique interiors,” says Tuomas Pyrhönen, CEO of Saari.
The light system of the pavilion, integrated with the Harmon fixed furniture, is supplied by SAAS Instruments. The system combines a range of SAAS Instrument lights used for various purposes, including design lights such as SUB, Routa, Light Ware, 340Y, Pipeline and Stick. SAAS Instruments works closely with architects and designers to produce made-to-order lighting for both public places and private settings.
“We love to say ‘yes’ to assignments outside our comfort zone. Researching the challenge and building a lighting concept with the client is exciting and rewarding. Lights are the easiest way to upgrade interiors and exteriors to make them more pleasant and sophisticated,” said Walter Långstedt, Export Manager of SAAS Instruments.
“We understand darkness owing to our northern environment. Our light system for the Harmon furniture at the pavilion balances the pavilion’s ambience and aesthetics. Light and shadows give the display the impression of a very special home.”
