Antrei Hartikainen

Antrei Hartikainen is Finnish designer and master cabinetmaker. He have extensive experience in working with wood design. He design and make products and individual pieces by combining practicality, the material itself and a certain artistic flair; at times focusing on only one of these aspects. The desire to bring out the diverse possibilities of wood is recurring theme in his work. He usually create contrasts using the relationships between the worked surface, the finish, light and shadow and light weight and solid wood.

Serlachius Museums

Amid the exquisite beauty of Finnish Lakeland lies one of Finland’s most prominent museum complexes, Serlachius Museums, offering memorable experiences to lovers of art, history, good food and nature: Two museums, three museum buildings. Several exhibitions: big names in contemporary art, masters of the Finnish Golden Age art, a dramatised history of the early days of the paper industry. Gösta’s sculpture garden. Taavetinsaari Island. Two museum shops. Restaurant Gösta’s pristine flavours. Bicycles, Nordic walking poles and rowing boats to borrow. The two museums are maintained by Gösta Serlachius Fine Arts Foundation. Its collection is one of the largest private art collections in Scandinavia. The roots of the museums stretch back to the history of Serlachius family that is well-known for its role in Finnish forest industry as well as art collecting.
