Key Insights

Piilo is a dining table for people who aspire to an effortless, minimalistic lifestyle. It is for those who appreciate domestic materials and beautifully designed, well-functioning everyday objects.

In the future, people will live in smaller spaces, so the designer wanted to combine a table with storage in a functional and fresh way. The idea of Piilo is also to preserve the culture of ’’eating together’’ by presenting a better option for the family dinner table. The tableware container has been designed to fit in only the essential items for a family of four to encourage people to think about what they actually need. Piilo fits well in the modern Nordic home environment as well as at a cottage.

Material partners for the prototype are Häfele, Hollolan viilu ja laminaatti Oy & Woodim.
