State Design Award

Muotoilun Valtionpalkinto 2017

On 8.12.2017, Katja Hagelstam, on the behalf of Lokal, was granted the State Design award of 2017. We are honoured, delighted, and extremely grateful. A big thank you goes to all those many of you who’ve been a part of this journey!

And quite a journey it has been, with so much that has come our way. We’ve had the pleasure of showcasing the works of so many artists, designers and makers, forming new connections, creating new collaborations, and expanding our family. Needless to say, we would not be anywhere close to where we are now, if it hadn’t been for the tremendous support from our customers, visitors and friends. We thank TAIKE (Taiteen Edistämiskeskus), for honouring us with this award.

“Helsinkiläinen Lokal-galleria on viiden vuoden aikana tuonut esille laadukasta suomalaista muotoilua, taidetta ja taideteollisuutta yllättävien yhdistelmin ja mielenkiintoisella ja raikkaalla tavalla. Gallerian vetäjänä toimii valokuvaaja Katja Hagelstam.
Gallerian teemoittain kootut ryhmänäyttelyt vaihtuvat kuukausittain. Yksi näyttelyistä on omistettu nuorille, alle 30-vuotiaille, uraansa aloittaville tekijöille. Näyttelyissä yhdistetään esimerkiksi typografiaa designiin ja taideteollisuuteen ja tuodaan esille rehellistä kädentaitoa, jolloin syntyy mutkattomia ja kiinnostavia kokonaisuuksia.
Muotoilua ja taideteollisuutta esittelevää galleriatoimintaa on Suomessa niukasti. Lokal-galleria perustettiin vuonna 2012. Galleria ja Katja Hagelstam ovat ansiokkaasti edistäneet muotoilun ja taideteollisuuden asemaa omalla toiminnallaan.”
