Forwards, sideways, backwards

Its design is centred on the minimal. But this sparseness does not apply to the many options for its setup and use: as a solid wood panel, mirror or a combination of both - haiku always cuts a fine figure. It does so whether it's standing on the floor or mounted, or is casually leaned against the wall in its mirror version. Clever extensions transform haiku into a space-saving entry hall piece that serves all important basic functions. If it is planned as a mirror, a rail with a key tray for clothing and small everyday items can be positioned vertically in the wood frame. The solid wood panel with hooks in different lengths offers added space for jackets, handbags and more. All versions of haiku can be equipped with a practical storage shelf for items such as keys and sunglasses. And, when you want, haiku's indirect LED lighting provides for a very particular, atmospheric ambience.
Solid wood forms the frame of haiku, which fulfils clearly defined functions depending on the design version. The angled wooden frame cleverly invites a natural focus on the essential. Creative sophistication is also to be seen in the cleverly chamfered, gently-formed front edge, which, despite haiku's solid materiality, lends the piece an intriguingly light appearance. Minimalism and concreteness are the essence of haiku - just like the eponymous Japanese form of poetry.
