Video: Aamu Song & Johan Olin, The Helsinki Series

After the raging success of the REDDRESS exhibit at The London Design Festival in 2011, Aamu Song and Johan Olin have spent the past year traveling through Russia and working on several new projects. This summer they’ve also given birth to Salaukkapa or ”Secret Shop’, a mini retail point near the Helsinki harbour selling some signature COMPANY items. Song and Olin swear by localism in design. From woven slippers to wooden puppets representing the varied Finnish fauna, all products are made by locals who continue to practice traditional techniques. And when they are not traveling through Russia or Europe, the design duo love to pick and cook mushrooms in the middle of the Finnish forests, a must for every visitor of ‘the land of one thousand lakes’.
