éN Hats & Milla Vaahtera Mobiles
Hat Garden

“We are united in a rebellion! We followed our enthusiasm towards natural materials and traditional ways of making things. We embrace and love the incompleteness that is so natural for handmade things. We have returned to the basics of making. Form and colour follow the craft & the passion,” describe Hanna Sarén & Milla Vaahtera of the design philosophy they bring to the exhibition.

Modern éN Hats are made in the éN hat studio in Korkeavuorenkatu, Helsinki using water-powered steam and hand-powered shaping.  Milla Vaahtera’s improvised mobiles are made in the Nuutajärvi glass village using fire to melt the sand of the earth.

DesignPartners19 gathers creatives with much more in common than expected under the same roof. In the hall of the palace, shoe designer meets material supplier, lighting manufacturer meets fashion designer, and furniture company meets chef extraordinaire. Potential partners can meet and present their views and skills in a shared space. The exhibition will be a surprising, memorable experience for all, and each participant’s audience will grow thanks to the collaboration.

Open from 11 am to 7 pm every day except Monday, 9 September.
