About Ari Korolainen : Ari Korolainen is a Finnish architect and designer who was one of the first designers who used recycled materials in his designs. 1985 he started to make cases and stationery products of recycled cardboard. Today he also uses recycled leather commonly in his designs. Good design and environmentally friendly materials can be seen in his Private Case stationery collection. Now, 30 years later, Private Case is a large collection of stationery products and Korolainen is known as Mr Private Case. Furniture design is his another ambition.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Good design can be like an artwork. It is not enough that it looks good, it has to feel good.
Like somebody once said: good, plain design is not a lack of something, it is a full amount of everything.
