We hope that the coming year will bring to all of you, our existing and new customers, wonderful encounters and happy moments in life! We believe, that for us the coming year will be full of exciting new events and surely meetings with great people.
At this point, we want to review the highlights of the last year. Year 2017 started with a big step when we opened our own Shop + showroom together with Hakola and Finarte to the old workshop hall in Telakkaranta. Jenni Inkeroinen and Niko Kärkkäinen designed a wonderful place for us in the historic space. Unfortunately, the story was short and ended at the end of the year, when the owner of the building decided to start developing the building in the other direction.
During the spring we made the first appearances on the European market. We first went to the Three days of Design event in Copenhagen and immediately after that a design event in London. Based on these, we started our first reseller discussions on the European market. In summer we traveled by car to Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. And in the fall we attended the Maison et Object fair in Paris. These actions have already lead to good results and our products are now available from Britain, France, Spain and Denmark. We are extremely happy with these great companies that are selling our products: Urban Avenue, Houzz, Les Enfants du Design, Peque Deco, MOT · TMA Design, Rummerligt.
In November we made a successful trip to Japan. Hope it will lead to a distribution agreement on the Japanese market.
For next year, we are hoping for more wonderful encounters with our customers, interesting co-operation with our partners, new resellers in Europe, distributor in Japan and finding a new retail premises in Helsinki. We are working hard to achieve these goals!
Warm thanks to all of you who have already participated in our journey! Let’s make year 2018 a great experience for all of us!
