Ornamo 100: Hands that draw the future

What does Xylitol chewing gum and the Bright White series of luminaires have in common? What is the trajectory from ‘Enso’ home storage boxes to the ‘Kasaa’ cardboard shelf? What is the designer’s role in the evolution of our environment and lifestyle? The Hands that Draw the Future exhibition tells the story of design from modernism to the future through objects selected by designers and users. With the Hands that Draw the Future exhibition, the Finnish Association of Designers Ornamo celebrates its first centenary.

Architect Tuomas Toivonen has worked as a curator of the exhibition.

logoGLASS ETC. – From Carafes to Cardboard

At present, increasingly fewer designers specialize in a single material. The main focus of the summer exhibition is on serial production, with emphasis on recent work mainly from the period 1990 –2012. The criterion of selection has been that the participating designers have created products in both glass and other materials. In the exhibition, the glass designers display not only work in glass but also products in other materials while the selected industrial designers glass objects designed by the in addition to other top-level products. 30 designers have been invited to participate in the exhibition.

Normann_Copenhagen_Side_Lamp_NewsNormann Copenhagen launches SIDE lamp by Heikki Ruoho

Heikki Ruoho has taken the archetypal table lamp and made it his own. The result is an elegant table lamp with an accessible design. The simple, clean base contrasts against the soft light that shines through the transparent shade made of acrylic. This creates a lively and dynamic design that is straightforward.

TUBO Light draws its inspiration from an everyday bulk product: a toothpaste tube. With a change of scale and by turning it into a light, the toothpaste tube is transformed into an elegant, playful lamp that gives off pleasant ambient light.
The lamp on display at Stockholm Furniture Fair is a prototype. The final version will be launched at Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan in May.
