My previous post was about TaitoShop and Finnish crafts. I continue with the same topic because we visited in Design Shop in Savonlinna which is part of NowHere Finland 2012 event.
I love handmade products, and if they are also environmentally friendly, I love them even more. These products were both so I really want to show you them!
“NowHere Finland 2012 focuses on environmentally friendly design – and on concrete products, works, acts and concepts. In environmentally friendly design products are designed to have minimal impact on the environment. The design process takes into account the entire product life cycle, from the extraction of raw materials to product disposal.”
