When I was asked to show Iitalas new lamp kuukuna at my blog, I didn't hesitate. Partly because I grew up with Finnish design and the strong clean expression that Iitala represents, but also because Kuukuna lamp is as if created especially for my home and my style. I love the round organic form and the fact that it is handmade by a glass-blower, which gives it high quality as well as a simple and timeless design. I fell for its pleasant design, but especially its light. Kuukuna lamp glows with a unique warm shade when you turn it on.
Kuukuna was originally designed in 1986 by the master craftsman Oiva Toikka and made by expert glass blowers in Iittala’s atmospheric Finnish workshops. And now Iittala has dug into its archives and decided to resurrect this mouth-blown glass light. Im very happy for that.

Earlier this year I was working as set designer for the German clothing brand Opus and for their fall/winter 14 collection. The Opus catalouge and the fashion newsletter was produced by the amazingly talented studio Strada and it was photographed in Stockholm. In the catalogue they included also a few extra pages about me and one of my DIY's, which was fun. I find it interesting to combine interior with fashion, and I would love to participate in more collaborations of that kind in the future.

Somehow I've always had this passion for sporty gymnastics environments, and it has not decreased after my daughter started at gymnastics. Therefore, these gym hooks /Hay designed by Staffan Holm was true love at first sight! You can not find more unique, sporty, playful and more creative hangers that these!

One of my Formex favorites this year was the beautiful Paper vase cover by designer Pepe Heykoop. The vases are cooperation with Tiny Miracels that provides the poor people education and workshops how to produce highend design. Design matters when a product is produced in a community where it makes a diffrence. styling/photo/Annaleena Karlsson
