Welcome to Lokal!

Lokal is a concept store and home to independent Finnish art, design and craft. Besides the unique art pieces in the gallery space, there is a wide array of selected products from some of the leading names in ceramics, furniture, art prints and kitchen ware. There is a strong emphasis on the timeless value of handmade items, craftsmanship and small scale production. The themed group exhibitions change every 1-2 months.

Lokal is run by photographer Katja Hagelstam. Inspired to create a space where to showcase the works of Finnish artists and designers, she opened Lokal in April 2012. It has been growing and changing ever since, showing a mix of recognized and up-and-coming artists. Lokal is also a Helsinki retailer of highly acclaimed Fiskars-based furniture brand Nikari.

We now also have an online shop for smaller products and selected photographs, including some of our most popular handmade and/or unique items. All items available in the online shop are not always on display at our physical store in Helsinki, and vice versa. If you wish to purchase anything that is not included in our online selection, please don’t hesitate to contact us at info(at)lokalhelsinki.com. We ship worldwide.
