New Study | mina perhonen + torafu architects

Akira Minagawa’s faux-Finnish design label mina perhonen has once again teamed up with Torafu Architects, this time to create New Study, a series of furniture which debuted at CLASKA earlier this year.

The production includes a storage system, a coffee table, stools, a rocker and a wooden trunk that transforms into a cute bench.


I love how the wooden trunk includes a nod of recognition to the mina perhonen and Dutch SENZ umbrella tie-up.

They look good but I imagine the shelves would be fairly impractical no? I’m loving those stools though they’re adorable.

Agree – the shelves definitely lean towards the realm of decorative.

That’s kind of a cool twist on storage.
