ONNI – Happiness – is a small designer and a craftmaker home shop and studio by Tuula Pöyhönen, located in an old textile factory turned into habitats.
We recommend to call in advance for a designer date and a stroll in the shop. Notice the shop has no regular opening hours nor collection, but inspiration guaranteed!
I got the first glimpse of clothing and accessories by ONNI during the Helsinki-Madrid FINdesign event in Spain. For the love of all things cosy, I spotted a special pair of sweet slippers, homemade in Helsinki.
Designer, shop owner and supermom Tuula combines the creative joys of keeping a shop and spending time with her kids by working on her designs at home-studio.
OK Do – a Helsinki based socially minded think tank for a better future – went to interview Tuula on the aspects of working at home. Read the whole story here.
ONNI will be presenting its spring collection in New York’s Meatpacking Design District during Straightforward New Finnish Design show, 14-17th May 2010.
