Katriina Nuutinen - Lyyli Box Series
Lyyli box series is created for jewels, sugar, pills, pastels, sweets, bath pearls and other small treasures to store nicely, within arm's reach.
Each Lyyli has travelled through the hands of four artisans. The wood originates from trees logged in Joensuu, Finland, the land of a thousand woods. It is created into a lid by wood-turning in the hands of an experienced professional in the same region where the trees grow. The lid is made specifically to fit a unique glass cup made by a glass blower. The product is crowned with a glass knob, handmade and polished by glass designers.
The combination of matt wood and shiny glass create a nuanced play of light, creating a compelling atmosphere
