For the Love of is a group exhibition that I curated for the Finnish furniture company Hakola's showroom at their Hakola House studio in Helsinki on Annankatu during Hakola's Design Days in September 2021. The show is open for everyone from Thursday the 16th to Sunday the 19th from 12-18 on Thursday to Saturday and 12-16 on Sunday the 19th at Annakatu 5, 2nd floor.
The starting point for this show was bold colors and forms, sustainability and integrity of quality, home related themes, everyday objects and a certain quirkiness that I find to be the core of the Hakola world.
The show is also an ode to boldness, passion, creativity and daring to do your own thing, which is what I see in Hakola and which are values that I stand for myself.
I think it is important that we question and come back to what we love and allow ourselves to create things and do things that we have a love for.
I create art exhibitions because for the love of
Bringing beauty into the everyday
Expanding my mind and learning new ways of seeing things
Bringing art into peoples lives and homes
Creating a space where people can meet and connect and be inspired by each other
What comes up for you when you ask yourself:
I do this for the love of...
Warmly welcome to have a look at the exhibition and Hakola's beautiful designs and studio!
