Designed by Harri Koskinen, the Lighthouse Island tableware set brings a fresh breeze and simplistic forms to the table setting. The set consists of a glass carafe, two tumblers, a glass dome, and a round pinewood tray. The glass parts have been mouth-blown in a wooden mould, giving them a beautiful vivid surface. The glass items have been manufactured by the Finnish glass studio Mafka & Alakoski, and the wooden tray by carpenter Arto Sillanpää. 40 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.
