Tovi shelf - 2016
Tovi Collection started from a study to explore the relation of 3 dimensional shapes and flat surfaces. We played with the idea to make a collection that gives the freedom to create variable collages. Different materials are used in the objects. The products can be used in various places in private homes as well in hotels for example.
Aarikka - Saimaa collection 2017
Aarikka’s spring/summer 2017 collection has taken its inspiration from nature: the lakes of Saimaa, its peninsulas, beaches and beach cliffs. The Saimaa range, Aarikka’s stylishly laid-back new addition, brings new and interesting shapes and playfulness to sauna spaces with its wall sconces and its towel hooks that resemble fishing floats. This range, designed by Anni Pitkäjärvi, also includes a sauna thermometer, a small and large wall shelf, a towel clip, a small and large vase as well as stylish Saimaa textiles.

Henki - 2016
Henki is a mood lightning that creates a calm atmosphere in the space. Things are turned upside down in the product, the light source is placed on the upper part and the lamp shade is place on the table. The body is mold blown glass and the upper part is lathed ash. The idea was to make a minimalistic product with a strong character.

Keshiki - Art glass 2015
Keshiki -hazy landscapes in glass is an installation that was born from a study of colors and glass blowing techniques. In the process landscape pictures were first transformed into aquarelles and then an intensive study to transfer their atmosphere into objects using hot glass was done. The journey was an experimental process to find out ways to achieve the wanted effects. When the objects are combined, the installation’s unique landscape fragments form an eclectic whole. Each object is mouth blown and unique. The installation is going to be exhibited in the 100 year anniversary exhibition of Finnish design in Design museum Helsinki spring 2017.
