Seasons of Tranquility! Aarikka's Autumn & Winter 2017-2018 jewellery range is inspired by the seasons of tranquility. The quiet forest carries nature's most beautiful color palette - pond, smoke, wild strawberry among others. The design languate of our jewellery plays with wooden rings, Aarikka's trademark round beads as well as exciting combinations of materials.

The Association of Interior Design Journalists in Finland have selected the 12 best Finnish interior design products of the year 2016. The editors’ choices are introduced as a part of Habitare Fair in Messukeskus. The awarded pieces present unique design and functionality.
The association wants to present at the Fair the beautiful and functional Finnish design, which reflects the modern daily needs.

The award-winning products are a combination of beautiful form, deeper thought and problem-solving ability. The designers and the manufacturers have made the concrete actions to make our daily life easier and more sustainable.
New Market is a market place established by Helsinki Design Week and Finlayson that offers early adopters an opportunity to check out completely new kind of design products. This playful launch and sales event opens next to extremely popular Design Market.
Talentshop 2016, to be staged in Habitare’s Block area of young emerging designers, will present five designers and one designer duo. At Talentshop, young, up-and-coming designers will get their own mini-showroom where they can present their work. In addition to Talentshop, the Block will include the Protoshop exhibition of prototypes, and various stands for design schools. Habitare will be held at Messukeskus from 7 to 11 September 2016.
"Finland might have produced Alvar Aalto but despite the massive importance of Swedish and Norwegian designers in the world of design at present Finland has been somewhat quiet. I sense that this is all about to change with Loumo Collective, a group of five young female designers: Hanna-Kaarina Heikkilä, Anni Pitkäjärvi, Hanna Särökaari, Elina Ulvio and Laura Väre, all from the small Nordic country."
