The Rrround Chair by Arttu Kuisma and Janne Melajoki, design students at the Institute of Design of Lahti, was the winning design of a contest based on recycled seats for public spaces.
Suitable for short-run production, Rrround makes use of 250 m2 of recycled exhibition carpet rolled up like colourful sushi.
The competition is open to designers and architects aged 35 or younger who are practising or studying design or architecture in Finland, as well as to work groups of the above. The aim of the competition is not only to promote Finnish design but also to give new opportunities for young designers and architects. Traditionally, a foreign, internationally renowned designer or architect is invited to select the winner. The prize is donated by the Finnish Fair Foundation.
