The exhibition was designed in collaboration with Aalto University’s School of Arts, Design and Architecture and School of Chemical Technology. Their inspiration for the work were childhood memories of the Finnish natural en- vironment. The exhibition’s Cabin (Mökki) installation, which brings a touch of intimacy to the tea area, was designed and created by students. Finnish wood and paper were used as materials for the installation. The white forest and tree trunks provided the inspiration for the choice of materials.
