Curated Artwork & Handmade Homeware
by Local Artists and Artisans

We create and bring to you moments in which art, craftsmanship and sustainability come together, reflecting the harmony of nature in both essence, material and design.

Lokal Creators / Melissa Sammalvaara

Melissa Sammalvaara is an adventurous artist and designer operating in Helsinki and various campsites around Finland. Nature and our relation to it is a large inspiration for her, which can be seen in her mossy, luscious artworks and the preference in ecological and second hand materials. We visited her studio to take a closer look at her lush materials and processes.

MÖKKI 20.5. – 6.8.2022

The cottage, or mökki, in Finnish, is a concept familiar to us all; a summer home, a dear place, a feeling of being. A home in the embrace of nature. A place where to calm down. Our summer exhibition features natural materials, handmade household items as well as artwork that has been born out of complete silence and the everyday simplicity of our summer homes. At the heart of the exhibition is the Lastut summer kitchen, designed by Hanni Koroma, around which the whole exhibition is intertwined.

Artists of the exhibition: Amos Hagelstam-Tanttu / Anna Karhu-Cormier / Teemu Järvi / Aimo Katajamäki / Reka Kiraly / Inka Kivalo / Eija Koski / Matti Pikkujämsä / Melissa Sammalvaara / Armi Teva / Sini VilliMakers and designers featured in the exhibition: Alpo Ahokas / Auvinen – Wiherheimo / Ville Auvinen / Pertti Humalajärvi / Hanni Koroma / Linda Laitinen / Bo-Åke Ljungars / Mattila Merz / Johanna Ojanen / Katri Peltonen / & the makers of Lokal Kollektion
