The Kitchen design for Fiskars at Surprise Guest exhibition

We collaborated with Fiskars and Marc Camille Chaimowicz to create the Kitchen stand for Surprise Guest exhibition at Fiskars Village Art & Design Biennale. The Surprise Guest exhibition tests the boundaries of fine art and design – while challenging the usual summer fantasies.

Surprise Guest, the Main Exhibition of the Fiskars Village Art & Design Biennale (16 June–1 September 2024), brings together a group of contemporary artists and design brands in the historic Granary at the heart of the old ironworks. The rooms designed by Exhibition Architect Lauri Johansson have the layered imprint of a design brand conceived in dialogue with contemporary artists and their oeuvres.

The exhibition’s themes and architecture are informed by the spirit of the Finnish summer villa culture, now already a bygone era when city dwellers and their families would pack up their earthly belongings and move to the countryside to pursue days filled with leisure and work.
