Modern Room Divider by Lincoln Kayiwa

Modern Finnish designer Lincoln Kayiwa has sent us his latest work – AAKKOSET, a room divider and a wall storage unit. A really cool and fine object. Here’s from the designer:

You may use both AAKKOSET’s obverse and reverse to hold books, CDs, magazines et cetera. As a room divider, you may also choose to leave it empty.

It’s one of the funkiest room dividers I’ve ever seen. And of course, I love the red.

The meticulous 4-week process to make just one AAKKOSET uniquely combines the very latest manufacturing technology with traditional craftsmanship: In brief, Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) is fed through a 5-Axis Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) router. It is thoroughly glued, pressed and primed before a deep rich paint job is first mechanically applied and then hand finished.

It is available in black, blue, green, orange, red, violet, white and yellow.
