The Kasaa shelf and the Kenno chairs are made of new kind of recycled cardboard. The sturdy yet lightweight material can be re-recycled as paper; water- based adhesives are used to create its sandwich construction. The material has an appealing feel of warmth and lightness, and it is durable and versatile.
Kenno chairs are manufactured by using computer-aided cutter, with little manual work required in the process. Four pieces of cardboard form a robust structure with no need for glue or screws.
Kenno series consist of three products: two chairs and a stool. The Kenno small (S) chair is perfect for children as it can be personalized by painting or drawing on the surface and then discarded when the child has outgrown it. Kenno (L) chair is the version for grown-ups.
With Kasaa cardboard shelf by Teemu Järvi Numerous variable combinations can be created with two different sized units that pile up to form a modular shelving system. Each unit folds up with two flat-packed cardboard sheets without the need for glue or additional fittings. The adhesives used in creating the sandwich construction are water-based, so material can be recycled as paper.
