The Children’s series

Auto (The car): A primary bed, storage space, walking cart. The car is a multifunctional furniture, a toy, and a bed. Intended as a bed during the baby’s first couple of months, as the baby can be rocked to sleep in the wheel-fitted car. The car adapts as the child grows, as it can be used in many different ways bringing happiness to the playing child for a long time. A part of the collection promoting the motoric development of the child.
Keinu (The swing): A baby swing made of fabric, wood and rope. Can be used both indoors and outdoors. Strengthens the balance of the child and has little resemblance to any baby swing on the market. A part of the collection promoting the motoric development of the child.
Mopo (The kickbike): A new version of the kickbike, standing on its own with two front wheels and one back wheel. Easy to use from very young: first pushing, then sitting and then kicking; developing the sense of balance. As the child grows, the bike can be turned into a two-wheeler, making the lifetime of the bike longer. A part of the collection promoting the motoric development of the child.
Juna (The train): A wooden toy train (resembling the Helsinki metro) in the color orange. Inspired by Helsinki World Design Capital 2012.
Tuoli (The chair): An ergonomic seat for the parents, making it easy to interact with the playing child on floor level. Functions as a slide for the child when turned upside down.

The home series

Hylly (Book shelf): A modular book shelf system, which can be expanded in height and width. Does not look modular when put together, and doesn’t need much space in storage. Simple, light and timeless design. Material painted mdf.
Lamppu (Lamp): Linear design that baffles with its huge shade. Made of painted metal and led lighting. Can be used as an illuminated desk.
Murakka (Ceiling light): A pendulous glass lamp hanging from a loop.
Pikkupöytä (Side table): A side table with five removable legs. Packs away very small. Looks like moving.

“At the moment all products are prototypes, but our goal is to be able to offer furniture for homes and public spaces in the near future.” says Juho Pasila, the designer of Pasila Design.
