Tero Kuitunen is a Helsinki based designer whose work distinctively plays with materials and forms. At the moment he is interested by a haptic approach to design, that is experimenting with touch. Which materials invite touch and why? Are the softness of velvet, the movement of tassles and the coarse surface of red clay qualities which invite touch? Tero’s style could be characterised as playful scandinavian. His design uses strong colour, playful forms and humour. Through these qualities Tero hopes to stir up feelings of happiness, bewilderment and insight in the viewer.
Erin Turkoglu is a Helsinki based designer. She works from the material-up, taking inspiration from new processes, possibilities and hands-on experimentation. The subtlety of colour and material is the defining characteristic of her work. She works with a wide range of materials and processes in order to create design/art objects ranging from tableware and furniture to textiles. The key ingredients in her work are high-end craftsmanship and a poetic expression of colour. After living in Istanbul and New York, she relocated to Helsinki in order to complete her MA degree at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture. Her work has been exhibited internationally in the past few years in the USA, Turkey, Netherlands, Mexico, Sweden, Finland and Italy.
