Sasu Laukkonen Chef&Sommelier Restaurant cook speaks to us about “The Beauty of the Tasting”. During my last year in Helsinki, I had the chance to work in 2  Spanish Food Projects. One is Goola, an online food shop and Alambique Oy. Both wanted to bring the best tasting pieces of Spanish food to Finland. My last months, I have been visiting professional chefs in the city. One of them was Sasu Laukkonen. A creative, humble and marvelous cook! I knew him in one of my selling appointments and after 1 hour of conversation with him, I proposed to make an interview. It was amazing chat with him. His way of expressing and speaking about ingredients and food designs made me think more about the richness that we have in Spain. We have a high quality food and land. We are lucky!

Of course, everything has been possible thanks to my friend and best professional Jose M. Sanchez of Kinetic Pixels and my boyfriend, Tuomas.

Here you can watch and listen to the interview. Do it! It’s really relaxing and interesting chat! ;-)

After living the whole Autumn and a part of Winter in Helsinki without watching snow and not feeling cold, now I am obsessed with white things. “The Witness in the White pieces” title reflects the feelings of my way of being some years ago.  Marre Moerel last Ceramic Project, called – HILO- has transmitted something special, when Francisco Polo, the design curator from We*Do Gallery Bangkok, sent me the essence & pictures of Moerel Designer artworks, I felt very identify with these conceptual vases. The simplicity and silence of the body combines really well with the noise of the ceramic threads. I love to feel peaceful inside me and noisy-fighter outside. I like when I connect easily with an artwork. I recommend to have a look to Marre Moerel & We*Do Gallery webs. I’m sure, you are going to have a nice moment! ;-)

Francisco Polo, thanks for sharing with me your collaboration with Marre Moerel Designs. Of course, the best is to have the chance to touch and see the real artwork.

Excellent conversation with Johanna Vuorio, Manager Director of NIKARI, Wood Design Furniture from Finland. She was speaking in an emotional and beautiful way her feelings with the wood as a material and NIKARI way of working. A pleasure to listen to her. ”All the Designs are, in a way, silent. They have some kind of soul”.

This time, in Helsinki, I have collaborated with Jose M. Sanchez from Kinetic Pixels. A very good Spanish friend who lives in Helsinki since 7 years. It is not my first time working with him, I love his works and I like how he captures his emotion into his shootings. I always count with him in audiovisual point of view. Thanks Jose for your great work. A pleasure! Hope we can make more!

As you know Design in Society are audiovisual interviews with people who are into fashion, architecture, social art and performances. These conversations try to analyze what kind of effects provoke daily consumption of design in our society. The Idea is to make this research around the world, visiting the most trendy cities (Bilbao, Seoul, San Francisco, Doha, Helsinki, Shanghai…) chatting with lots of curious people and analyzing different point of views, reactions and ways of thinking.

The combination of Anna Ruohonen designs + Ludovic Kerfendal artistic directions, once again, created an interactive, human and cool SS14 Fashion Show. And why not I took part as a model. As always, Anna & Ludovic like to make a performance. This time, Ludovic chose Aero Furniture Design Store for setting the show in Helsinki. The idea was that we would be ” living” in the shop… reading a book in a armchair…watching through the window…checking you mail on your computer… chatting together… having a glass of.. water or wine… And then, every 20 minutes we would change clothes (but not all of us at the same time ! ) Anna Ruohonen likes to watch her designs wearing in a “normal” people…how people are going to use her designs in daily life doing “normal” things. That is me and 7 more Finns role. I enjoyed it a lot! I like to have new experiences and it was so interactive that I was speaking and laughing with all the people, audience and the rest of the models.

Thanks for the experience Anna & Ludovic! www.annaruohonen.com

Damien Hirst & Alexander McQueen, a film by SØLVE SUNDSBØ.

Alexander McQueen has invited British artist Damien Hirst to create a new scarf collection.

DAMIEN HIRST English artist. Revolutionary english artist. Death is a central theme in Hirst’s works. He became famous for a series of artworks in which dead animals (including a shark, a sheep and a cow) are preserved—sometimes having been dissected. Last year, I watched his exhibition in Tate Modern, London. NICE!

Alexander McQueen English fashion designer. Integral to the McQueen culture is the juxtaposition between contrasting elements: fragility and strength, tradition and modernity, fluidity and severity.

To celebrate Alexander McQueen’s 10th anniversary here you have the Scarf Collection 2013.
