‘ducky’ furniture set by petteri hakkinen

 

 

finnish designer petteri häkkinen has chosen wood to conceive ‘ducky’ – a series of six furniture pieces resembling form qualities of a duck family. details and joints are made with high-quality birch honouring the material – where influences from the 50’s can be seen in its structure. because of its ergonomic shape, easy chairs and the rocker are highly comfortable without the need for cushions.
