There was a heat wave in Frankfurt, so it was good to walk to the exhibition center early in the morning before the temperature rised to 40 Celcius. A total of 603 exhibitors presented their fashionable lifestyle and trend products at the 3-day lifestyle fair. My booth was in the Hall 8.
I’ll exhibit my design in Frankfurt during the Tendence fair 27 – 30.8.2016. I was invited to the Talents exhibition that shows new and innovative design from young european artists. Please come and have a closer look! There will be glass cartoons, carousels, drinking glasses and snowy lamps.

Vuoksi drinking glass & desert bowl captures the movement of a fluttering fabric inside the glass material. Each glass has it’s own breath because the movement of the cloth-like colour is frozen inside the glass during the glass blowing process. Made in Riihimäki, Finland.
Glass cartoon is made with 100 years old glass blowing technique that is mixed with modern 3D-design. Each glass sculpture has multiple image layers on top of each other under the surface of the glass. Surrealistic dream scenes are captured inside the glass to last forever. Glass cartoon has been exhibited in New York, London and Toronto.
Silent winter landscapes, heavy snow and darkness of the Scandinavian night are the main inspirations in the Polar night lamp. The lamp has multiple nested glass domes that filter the light in various ways playing with the variation of dimness and brightness.
