Finnish Design Shops

16 May

To round off the recent posts about Finnish design, there are a couple of shops worth visiting if you’re interested in this kind of stuff.

First one – Suomi PRKL Design –  is opening soon in Reykjavik, Iceland.  Their Facebook page looks very promising and the shop will stock everything from Moomin mugs, to rag rugs and JoPo bikes!

I’m totally loving these Kaksitva creatures – check out also Kaksitva’s own website for more!

Kaksitva is also taking part in the Northern Oddities pop up event that showcases the eccentric Finnish Design and lifestyle in NYC from tomorrow 17th May until 28th May and is housed by Ivana Helsinki.

Which brings me to the other shopping destination that is online – phew!! The Design Shop Outlet stocks a wide selection of all things Finnish including the brands taking part in Northern Oddities.

My instant Design Shop Outlet favourites are the Moomin Mobile -40% (bonus!) and soft toys/pillows by Johanna Kunelius.
