Finsk Design – DesignMarch

Choice – DesignMarch

Nordens Hus byr på finsk samtids kunst/design under DesignMarch 23. – 26. mars, hjertelig velkommen! 

Made by Choice

Landskabs Oplevelse består af ekspressive landskaber malet på træ, som derefter er omdannet til møbler. Installationen fuldendes af lydlandskaber, der er skabt og skræddersyet til installationen. LandskabsOplevelse er resultatet af et samarbejde mellem det finske møbelbrand Choice, landskabsarkitekt og kunstner Lotta Jalava og den finske popmusiker Mikko Pykäri.

Det finske designbrand Choice står for møblerne til installationen. Choice arbejder under overskriften: Visionært nordisk design & skræddersyet møbelproduktion. Deres ønske er at bringe skabelsen af de enkelte produkter tættere på forbrugeren. Deres nøje udvalgte designs produceres kun i små partier, så de i samarbejde med brugerne kan forbedre møblerne et valg ad gangen.

Møblerne er dekoreret af den finske kunstner og landskabsarkitekt Lotta Jalava. Lotta har studeret landskabsarkitektur ved Aalto Univeristy of Arts, Design and Architecture i Helsinki og arbejder blandt andet freelance som landskabsarkitekt ved MASU Planning.

Som akkompagnement til møblerne vil den finske pop-musiker Mikko Pykäri levere musik til installationen.

Lokal

Ragamuf

A stretchy RAGAMUF chair rug is a chair cover, which fits to different shapes and sizes of chairs. It is made my hand from knitted rag, which is produced from textile surplus of the textile industry.

Every RAGAMUF chair rug is unique. Each chair rug is a piece of art – a maker designs her own rug by choosing it’s colors and shapes. This way work becomes remarkable to her and each rug is a personal Homemade Homemate.

We employ Syrian refugee women near the Syrian border in Turkey. We hire women without a livelihood to enable them to live fulfilling, independent lives.
