Kartta glass sculpture 240 x 335 mm, ultramarine

Fascinating mystique

Blue glass reflects light magically and is guaranteed to impress its audience. Designed by Santtu Mustonen, the name of Kartta glass sculpture refers to an imaginary map that leads the observer to a getaway to another world. The sculpture is made using a mould technology developed by Mustonen himself, in which digital manufacturing methods are combined with more traditional metalworking.

Eero Aarnio Originals Pastil Chair, white

Freshen up with white

While bright colors enliven the environment, pure white also acts as an impressive element, especially when combined with deeper shades and darker wood surfaces. Designed Eero Aarnio in the ’60s, the Pastil Chair sums up the style of the time – the distinctive material and round futuristic shape are still a favorite of many. Pastil Chairs are also available in several brighter shades.
