If I were to make such a bold declaration that 2010 officially marks the year that we declare our love for everything Finnish, it probably wouldn’t be too far-fetched (as you can see from our well-received look into Igloo life). Finnish design firm Lovi Oy certainly reinforces this case with their imaginative and playful postcards.
While traditional postcards do convey the message of being thoughtful, they indeed fall behind in the ornamentation practicality aspect. Here’s where Lovi differs from their lacklustre counterparts. Designed by Anne Paso, these birch plywood postcards come with pre-cut pieces along with string and instructions to be assembled into 3-D objects used to animate any room.
The smallest of the cards are able to fit into envelopes making them tremendously easy to send. As a small gift, these Lovi postcards will definitely put a smile on any receivers face with the multifaceted purposes it brings to one’s day.
While Lovi makes use of wood and paper for their products, they do their part in supporting the environment through the purchase of their decorative trees. With each purchase, they donate a portion to planting trees in a developing country.
