Studio Tolvanen Terassi Dining Table
The husband-and-wife team of designers Julie and Mika Tolvanen works out of Studio Tolvanen in Helsinki, designing everything from furniture to accessories for companies around the globe. Though they share their lives together, each one approaches design from different directions. "We are both very independent minded," Julie explains. In fact, the Terassi Collection (2017) was their first project together. Inspired by 1930s-era furniture they came across on a visit to Timberline Lodge in Oregon, they endowed the Terassi Dining Table with a spaced-plank tabletop for excellent outdoor performance and round tapered legs for a leaner profile and rustic yet crafted appearance. "We wanted the overall feeling to be familiar but a bit lighter, a bit friendlier," Julie says. Terassi is expertly fashioned in high-quality teak with a beautiful straight grain. Includes a removable plug consisting of two concentric rings to accommodate umbrellas of various sizes. Made in Indonesia.
