The "SIVUNI" designed by Mika Tolvanen is going to be displayed at the Shenzhen International Furniture Exhibition 2017.
"SIVUNI" is a new iteration of the original "SIVU" table designed by Mika Tolvanen for E&Y "2005-2006 Collection". This updated version is made from four pieces that are cut, folded, and overlapping. The result is leaner and more playful. The name "SIVUNI" involves some wordplay. "Ni" in Japanese means 'two' ("SIVU" number two). "SIVU" in Finnish means "page" (since it's a magazine holder). Adding the "ni" changes the meaning to "My page." It gives a tender impression to the space with the original shape designed by Mika.
