TATTIS™ is a stool designed for outdoor use and it blends into the garden. It can be placed also in uneven ground.  Tattis was originally designed to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Women’s Bank of Kuopio.

But the beauty and usability, the message of the product is important for the designers, Jaana Partanen and Heikki Lamusuo.

"Tattis means thank you in Finnish. Which leads you to Women's Bank. Tattis is a universal product that could be used in Africa as well. Over there mothers cook the food outside - just like we do in the summertime." Jaana Partanen, artist.
