The flat-pack collection comprises a range of storage solutions and tables of different sizes. Yukari Hotta is a graduate from Copenhagen’s Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, and his “Kile coffee table” was a finalist in this year’s Green Furniture Award. The design will be on display at the inspiring Stockholm Furniture Fair 2012, which runs from the 7-11 of February.
