We designed a collection of six ceramic items celebrating Finnish festivities and beliefs.
The Lucius and Lucia candleholders bring light to the dark winter. Pauper coin collector is based on a tradition of wooden paupers outside churches collecting money for the poor. The Midsummer Dream Vase is for the seven wild flowers one should keep under the pillow to meet ones future partner. And last is the Easter Witch with her dog who holds the decorated easter branches (virvontaoksa. Available in May 2019.

We designed a carpet for the new Central library Oodi.
The carpet is one of the six art-carpets comissioned for the library. Ours is an ode to the late Finnish writer Aleksis Kivi (1834–1872).
The base of our artwork was a tiny cabin where Aleksis Kivi spent his last year. The cabin is reproduced in 1:1 scale in the carpet (3850 x 7300 mm). The library users can now walk in the cabin and experience the conditions of life in late 19th century. Aleksis Kivi shared this tiny cabin with his brother’s family of wife and four children.
