BOLON part of the exhibition Wild at Heart
Wild at Heart is an international exhibition project initiated by the Finnish Institute in Germany, in collaboration with the Finnish Institutes in Hungary, Sweden and Japan. Wild at Heart – A Collection of Modern Finnish Design and Art – curated by designer Tero Kuitunen, offers a look into the exciting world of contemporary Finnish design. This year the exhibition tours in Stockholm, Japan and Helsinki.
The exhibition consists of three stages all with Bolon flooring. Now Copper, Artisan Quartz, Elements Cork and Create Fabrico can be seen in the exhibition among with the eleven designers that move boldly at the intersection of art and design, with wild hearts and open minds.
- BOLON’s color palette was extremely tempting, and the sustainable values as well as having the production in Sweden were important values that I wanted to bring forward in the exhibition. I also chose BOLON because we could re-use the same material in each location, as the exhibition will be shown in five different countries, says Tero Kuitunen.
The exhibition runs between February 5th until the 4th of April at Finnish Institute, Snickarbacken 2-4 in Stockholm.
BOLON is one of few carefully selected women-led businesses, organizations and local women curators, that is a part of this interesting and exclusive female exhibition.
Visitors will be able to see BOLON tiles, cut into arty graphic shapes in a sober colorscale. Visitors will be forbidden from taking pictures and scroll on social media once they have crossed a specially constructed magic gate. The aim is to inspire them to experience MISSCHIEFS with their human senses rather than their digital devices, to push for a closer more intimate and complete relationship between viewers and art works.
MISSCHIEFS presents a unique collection of functional objects specially made for the exhibition, available for sale in a limited edition of three pieces only. All profit from the sales of the objects and catalogue goes to the foundation, THE CASE FOR HER.
