Kiila Collection

Designer: Daniel Rybakken

Year: 2017

Kiila is a family of useful and versatile small furniture objects designed with hallways and entrances in mind. In homage to Alvar Aalto’s vision, the Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken has created not a series of individual pieces, but a system of construction: hefty wooden legs connected by wedge-shaped metal joints, left purposefully visible. The name itself draws attention to the design: Kiila is Finnish for “wedge.” Secured with high-grade polyamide pins that double as hooks, the sturdy Kiila Coat Stand and Coat Rack can carry serious weight, while the multipurpose Kiila Bench provides a simple and elegant way to organise space. Beautiful supporting elements for any interior, the Kiila pieces are built to last, a quality visually articulated in the strength of their legs and robustness of their parts.

"There is a very apparent logic to the Kiila series and I recognize this in Alvar Aalto’s designs too. These are products designed within the parameters of industrial manufacture, they are intended to be part of a system that can be repeated."
