This project was created based on a cooperation between LINAK Finland and the Aalto University, School of Arts, Design and Architecture in Helsinki, Finland. The idea was to design a novel piece of furniture where movement by LINAK® electric actuators, would play a role in its functionality. Five works were chosen to be manufactured as prototypes.
One of these was Vekki. Vekki is a textile surface space divider, whose height can be adjusted according to need. The project was presented in Helsinki Design Week 2015 and again at Stockholm Furniture Fair 2016.
