Exhibition #42 – Klaus Haapaniemi Black Lake

31.3.2017 – 30.4.2017

A remote cottage in Nordic Iceland overlooking a dark, steaming pond with strange foliage and mysterious lava stones. Black lake is Klaus Haapaniemi & Co’s new collection inspired by a description of this volcanic landscape and a magical land.

Klaus Haapaniemi & Co was first commissioned by artist Björk Gudmundsdottir to create bespoke furniture for her remote summer cottage in Iceland. Her description of the majestic surroundings sparked Klaus’ imagination to create woven tapestry that brings the imagined view to life.

Before the furniture starts its journey to Iceland it’s only once showcased in Helsinki Lokal gallery with other items of the Black lake collection. Special products of the Black Lake collection including printed wool scarves and velvet clutches are created to be sold exclusively in Lokal.

Black lake collection contains Klaus Haapaniemi & Co’s love for both craft and cutting edge digital production.The furniture is custom built by Nikari in Finland, the tapestry is woven in an old textile mill in England and the pond rug is printed on wool in Netherlands.
