Summer kitchen is designed by Linda Bergroth together with Fiskars for fashion designer Vuokko Nurmesniemi.
Linda Bergroth (b. 1978) is a Helsinki- and Paris-based designer, whose projects range from industrial design and interior architecture to creating sets. Having studied both furniture design at the University of Art and Design and architecture at the École d’Architecture Paris-Malaquais, Bergroth moves fluently between different scales, fusing commercial and experimental, lasting and temporary. In her work, Nordic traditions encounter bold and unpredictable ideas with a surprising outcome. Bergroth’s vision is valued by leading Scandinavian design brands such as Fiskars, Marimekko and Artek, and she was honoured as the Young Designer of the Year 2012 in Finland.
Established in the Fiskars village in 1649 as an ironworks, Fiskars has since grown to be a leading global consumer goods company. Today, Fiskars is internationally known for its high-quality tools for gardening, cooking and crafts, including its iconic orange-handled scissors.
As the oldest company in Finland, we are proud of our long heritage while also being devoted to continuous development and cutting-edge innovation. This is how we create products characterized by superior quality, ingenious functionality and world-class design.
Fiskars’ mission is to empower everyday creativity through purposeful design. We want to inspire expression today that lives beyond tomorrow. We want to help you shape your world.
“Vuokko’s winter home in Helsinki is one of the loveliest homes I’ve ever visited, and her kitchen is embedded in the middle of the living room floor like the famous conversation pit of the Miller House. Vuokko’s style is confident and bold, and it shows in everything she does: how she lives and works and what she wears. Vuokko is a hostess with the mostest and loves to invite old and new friends to visit her home. Hospitality and the idea of sharing were a great base for designing the summer kitchen.”
