“We are happy to have Satu in our team. Her experience gives further reinforcement and insight to Piantek’s project management.

Space4you – Support and enjoyment for the students


“The students find it to be an interesting space. When you enter, you feel the lift of learning and the joy of learning.” This is how Assistant Principal Marianne Andersen describes the separate six-person space solution at Lehtikuusi School in Vantaa.  It’s all about the Space4you workspace of Piantek.

The soundproofed standalone space at Lehtikuusi School creates a peaceful learning environment for students from 1st to 5th grade. Interaction with the teacher or the therapist can take place at close range, strengthening the student’s sense of individual encounter. The students consider the space as a favourite location for a lesson.

The new learning space built in the school lobby offers modern charm to students in the older corridor schools, also contributing to it being the desired working space. The air conditioning in the space also ensures clean and fresh air. In newer open schools, a separate soundproofed space offers a peaceful, safe and quiet recess.

“There are a lot of people moving around in our lobby, but this space nicely supports our need to exclude sounds and the traffic of the lobby from the actual learning situation”, Andersen describes the functionality of Space4you.

Teachers enjoy the intense and focused student encounter made possible by the extra space.  Teachers can also more easily show that they are right there at that very moment just for their students.

In addition to deploying it as learning premises, Lehtikuusi School uses the Space4you as a conference room with teacher colleagues, children’s guardians, therapists and other partners, either in face-to-face or remote meetings. In this way, it also enables teachers to have a separate and peaceful workspace when needed.

The Space4you workspace at the Lehtikuusi School, named the Havu conference room, is part of the learning environment development project organized by the @City of Vantaa.  The aim is to experiment with different solutions to add teaching facilities to school lobbies and other public spaces.

Piantek participates in the Apteekkari 2020 event on November 19-20


In the Apteekkari 2020 event, Piantek will comprehensively present how the hygienic and antibacterial Space4you is suitable for the pharmacy environment- When visiting the event, you are welcome to get acquainted with the solutions used in Space4you, which make the compact space antibacterial, soundproof and barrier-free. Our special furniture production is also presented, as well as our Safe Products product family, which is used to increase the premises’ antibacterial properties.

Antibacterial service point for pharmacies

Space4you is ideal, for example, as a service point for various one-on-one guidance activities or measurements. Space4you is available in four different sizes, so there is even room for larger devices if needed. If necessary, the space can be divided by partitions.

The Space4you air purifier is energy efficient and quiet. It cleans the air of small particles up to 0.02 µm (micrometers) in size, such as viruses, bacteria, microbes and dust, without any harmful by-products. Because Space4you produces 10 times its size of fresh air, it also improves the air quality of the surrounding space.

The hygiene of the space can be increased using antibacterial lighting. The Safe Light luminaire produces light that eliminates microbes and bacteria, but is still safe for human beings.

Barrier-free space solutions

Space4you has wide sliding doors that can be opened with an RFID reader or automatically with a motion detector. An integrated access ramp also makes it easier to enter the space.

Special furniture and hygiene-enhancing Safe Products

How does an antibacterial and air-purifying cash register sound like? Also at the same time protecting staff and customers?

We manufacture furniture and equip spaces where ventilation technology is used to produce solutions that protect people. We also increase their antibacterial effect with lighting technology and surface materials.

A luminaire can be positioned in the area to create unfavourable conditions for viruses and bacteria on the surfaces.  Technology can be installed in the store’s waiting areas and corridors to capture aerosol-level small particles. All this in an energy-efficient, silent, and if necessary, invisible manner.

Cleaner and healthier premises – Piantek’s cleaning product solutions for public spaces



Dedicated to the customer’s needs – interior design contracting utilizes the experience of a fine carpenter and the courage of propeller heads


We were in charge of the total contracting of Starbucks’ new café in the non-Schengen area of ​​Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in the early spring of 2020. We manufactured the furniture and other interior for the premises at our Koskenkorva factory. The design for the Starbucks’ recognizable interior look was very clear. However, we could locate several points where by changing technical solutions we could provide Starbucks, the customer, a solution where the design look and quality is maintained but a more production efficient end result is achieved. The proposals were well received and they were implemented. Our idea was also to make the cooperation with other contractors more streamlined, thus introducing an added efficiency to the project.


Piantek vastasi Starbucksin uuden kahvilan kokonaisurakoinnista Helsinki-Vantaan lentoaseman non-schengen-alueella alkukeväällä 2020 / Piantek was in charge of the total contracting of Starbucks' new café in the non-Schengen area of Helsinki-Vantaa Airport in the early spring of 2020


A couple of years ago, we started to seriously invest in interior design for restaurants and in making of special furniture. The Corona pandemic has, of course, led to a refinement of the strategy. Our customers include Restel, Burger King, Hesburger (Lohja Prisma) and Viking Line. As we also are familiar with electrical and HVAC work and other interior design contracting, we often make even other technical plans for the premises in order to facilitate our own work at construction sites for furniture and interior. We also provide plans meant to be utilized by other builders, as those plans sometimes solve technical or material challenges for all builders.

We consider such cooperation between contractors and designers to be important for us, because it is in the best interests of our customer. We are a good partner for all parties in the project. Cooperation will bring smoothness to work and reduce misunderstandings, and usually it often creates new innovative solutions. It is important to be able to work with the entire partner network, and it is our duty to take into account also their needs to achieve the customer’s goal. That is an added value that one can’t afford to ignore.

Therefore, we at Piantek take all parties involved in the project into account. We take up and delve into customer challenges, and the harder the pressure, the harder we work on the project. The aim is not to get off easily, but to find the best solutions and even to create innovative new ones if needed.


Interior design contracting and furniture construction ahead of the new

As an innovator, we want to be visible in the field of interior design contracting and furniture construction.

We are ahead of the corona and its aftermath: a couple of years ago, we developed safety-enhancing and antibacterial Safe Products solutions for furniture construction. They are spearheaded by a small office-sized, antibacterial Space4you workspace. Already in the spring of 2020, we were able to supply Safe Products to shops, restaurants, hotels and offices. Antibacterial properties are based on the use of purple light, air purifiers and selected surface materials.

The development of antibacterial furniture construction is one example of our goals to reform the industry. But we have our propeller hats on for every project. The more challenging the target, the more excited we are! With problem solutions, we have the opportunity to influence customer satisfaction and the development of the entire industry.

Piantek’s operations began 15 years ago in Ostrobothnia with the production of various store racks, shop in shop solutions and boat interiors. Our fine carpentry skills have not disappeared anywhere, but in addition to them, a lot of knowledge about different materials, techniques and technologies has been accumulated. By combining these factors, Piantek creates completely new types of innovative solutions with good quality and style.
