Play, colour, and joy – this exhibition is a tribute to Kaija Aarikkas diverse oeuvre


Wooden rams, playful jars and colourful wooden jewellery – Kaija Aarikkas products belong to the cozy core of Finnish design. The exhibition presents the designers diverse body of work through both beloved classics and plenty of joy of discovery.

In autumn 2023, Kunsthalle Helsinki will be filled with Kaija Aarikkas diverse designs. The richly colourful exhibition explores Aarikkas wide-reaching, 60-year career as a designer.

Kaija Aarikka is especially known as a designer of jewellery, decorative items, and small interior objects. Her design work has been accessible to many: Aarikkas wooden gnomes, colourful tin cans, and eye-catching candlesticks are familiar objects from many homes and popular collectibles.

As a designer, Aarikka was brave and willing to experiment, and her extensive body of work also includes areas unknown to the general public, such as precious metal jewellery and glassware, which offer the joy of discovery and broaden the usual perception of her lifes work.

Play, colour, and joy characterise not only Aarikkas design, but also the exhibition at Kunsthalle Helsinki. The exhibition is carried out together with the family of Kaija Aarikka, and is curated by Kunsthalle Helsinkis exhibition manager Eeva Holkeri. The exhibition architecture is designed by Hanna Anonen, who received Finlands Young Designer of the Year award in 2021.
