The aim was to design a new product collection, creating collaborations beyond borders amongst designers and manufacturers that perfectly suits and honours the Spanish Ambassador’s residence, Villa Himberg, which was created by Aarne Ervi in 1954. The collection will be permanently displayed at the Spanish Embassy in Finland.
