Lately I kept running into products that give light for plants and herbs during Finnish autumn and winter. I guess this is something people really need, at least Ii do! Here is one of them: Fiskars Herb Garden.
One of my favorite product from VersoDesign. This basket was a co-operation result with Iittala. Other than this they also have a whole new product line coming out this autumn which combines the felt and Finnish traditional birch bark basket in a modern way, including bread basket, herb basket, mushroom basket (my favorite!)… etc.
I was just thinking that IVANAHELSINKI’s new moomin collection is beautiful, but would probably be a bit expensive for me. Now I saw this, wow, this is cute, hmm, maybe this would be affordable for me? ;-)

SUKLAATILA – literally translated as “chocolate space”, is a Finnish hand-made chocolate brand from countryside. For me, their most interesting products are those chocolates that contains Finnish local dried berries or herbs. The one I bought to try is dark chocolate with quite a few whole dried blackcurrant. Really tasty!
NowHere Finland – a national exhibition was held in Taidehalli, Seinäjoki between 16.1. – 14.2.2010, organised by Pohjanmaan taidetoimikunta.
The exhibition’s purpose is to give designers outside of the capital area opportunities to showcase their designs and network with each other. Therefore, the co-operation partners include many provincial’s art committees, whose main responsibilities are to inform designers in their local areas of the event and to promote networking as well as to enhance public’s understanding on design.
The name of exhibition was interesting. Last year when I got to know about the exhibition, I thought it to be “NoWhere Finland”, a small city in the middle of nowhere? of NowHere Finland, happening right here! Well, it is of course the latter one.
Among 400 applications from all over Finland, 43 works are chosen and exhibited.
