Inspired by the public bathing cultures of both Finland and Japan, Kiulu Bench typifies the refinement and ability to create new archetypes for which designer Koichi Futatsumata is renowned.
Public baths, as both social nexus and cleansing ritual, are deeply embedded in the cultural landscapes of both Finland and Japan, and this connection is taken as the designer’s starting point.
A cylindrically shaped bucket, Kiulu in Finnish, is traditionally used in public baths of both countries and stands at the origin of Futatsumata’s bench design.
Kiulu Bench serves several functions - as seat and basket, offering storage for items such as towels and cosmetics, magazines or toys.
Embodying Futatsumata’s concern with material and eye for detail, Kiulu Bench can find its application in the dry surroundings of the bath/spa/wellness area and beyond.
