Hi there, I'm FIKA NIWA

This is my story.

Maker: Pair

After noticing that nothing about our “forgotten” pieces were perfect,square, or level, we decided to embrace their potential wabi-sabi. The original stand’s half round molding felt very Japandi/Scandinese to us and the floral molding inspired us to do something with gardens. Although we liked the fluted nature and raw materials, we felt this piece needed some physical and visual space to breathe and celebrate everything that is going on.

Going with the Japandi/Scandinese theme, we focused on the Japanese concept of an indoor(ish) garden, tsubo-niwa, and the Swedish concept of fika, a time to take a break from the days’ activities (specifically a coffee break.) Although this isn’t a coffee break specific table, we wanted to create a space where you can take a break from the day, focus on tending your indoor garden, and, while you’re back at work, your garden will get the sunlight and nutrients it needs.


  • Trellis for climbing or hanging plants to wrap around and drape on.
  • A grow light which has color and intensity settings and is remote controlled and programmable.
  • Two levels to optimize the growth of both full and partial sun plants.
  • Soft glow in the dark features.

Whether you are back at the office or just away for the weekend, your indoor garden will get the “sun” it needs but will welcome you back for that much needed “fika” break to tend to all your plants.
