Roots/Juuret is an exhibition by design collective Son of Martin, held in Fiskars, Finland in June-July 2017.
Son of Martin is a family design collective. As designers, our family and love of design and craftsmanship brings us together. We continue our grandfathers’ craft traditions through two generations, each in our own way. We are divided across the world, in Finland and Australia. Our time together, our dependence on each other and shared understanding provides support for the development of our individual design articulation. Each exhibiting designer works either as an independent designer or in a micro-business. Although our individual approaches to design are distinctive, the whole is brought together through an uncompromising commitment to advancing design and craft workmanship.
ROOTS/JUURET exhibition offers the differing approaches of the designers and their different perspectives: structural, conceptual, artistic and theoretical. The exhibition shows how Finnish furniture design can also break from the traditional image and be exuberant, rich in detail, and artistically realised.
Deka Design will be exhibiting custom made cabinets made by Lasse Kinnunen, and a selection of furniture and accessories from our current collection. Designers participating: designer-makers Helena and Lasse Kinnunen; redirective designer Nora Kinnunen; interior architect Anne Kosonen; and interior architect and furniture designer Wilhelmiina Kosonen.
