Mägi Bench & Log Lamp by Jari Nyman and Olli Mustikainen
View Slideshow

A collaboration between Finnish designers, Jari Nyman and Olli Mustikainen, resulted in two noteworthy designs – the Mägi bench and the Log lamp.

The Mägi combines seating and storage into a bench that mixes simplicity (bench seat) with irregularity (the base). The jagged base allows for open pockets of space to store essentials like magazines, books, or beer.

For their Log lamp, the duo was inspired by a burning log with its glow emanating from a fireplace. Press the wood block down and it pops up to expose the light. Press it again and it switches the light off.
