Take a shopping break and go see Daniel Rybakken present his new collection at the Artek Helsinki store.
Two new families of furniture and accessories by Norwegian designer Daniel Rybakken address the question of what it is to be a contemporary Artek product. The Kiila range of storage and seating and the 124° series of mirrors cleverly utilize systems of industrial manufacture in their making and explore the point at which art and technology converge. These new designs articulate key Artek philosophies in a fresh and original design language.
Tuesday 12 September
Arela, Natalia Ritari works and STUDIO smoo blend the borders of creativity by grabbing the same rope and tying clothing, art and design together. The respect towards sustainable and traditional working while not forgetting to adapt to the requirements of the current day motivated the trio to arrange an exhibition together.
