The Baltic Herrings glass artwork by Juhani and Pirkko Salovaara depicts a group of small fish swimming in the Archipelago Sea and reminds about the importance of protecting fragile marine areas. The beautiful, transparent artwork is mounted slightly off the wall with included fittings, so that the engraved fish will cast shadows on the wall and create an impression of a herring school floating in the depths of the sea. You can also place it free-standing on a wall shelf, for example. The product has been manufactured by the Finnish company Kaune, and 50 euros of the proceeds will go directly to the Unique Archipelago Sea operation.
Finnish Design Shop’s Archipelago Sea collection resulted from an initiative of the Unique Archipelago Sea (Ainutlaatuinen Saaristomeri) operation. Well-known Finnish designers have contributed to this unique collection aimed at protecting Finland’s Archipelago Sea. Consisting of more than 41,000 islands, the Archipelago Sea is one of the richest natural areas in Finland in terms of biodiversity, but continuous eutrophication is a serious threat to its future. Part of the collection's proceeds will be directed to a program for recycling nutrients in the Archipelago Sea. All products are handmade in Finland and only available at Finnish Design Shop.
