We designed a carpet for the new Central library Oodi.
The carpet is one of the six art-carpets comissioned for the library. Ours is an ode to the late Finnish writer Aleksis Kivi (1834–1872).




The base of our artwork was a tiny cabin where Aleksis Kivi spent his last year. The cabin is reproduced in 1:1 scale in the carpet (3850 x 7300 mm). The library users can now walk in the cabin and experience the conditions of life in late 19th century. Aleksis Kivi shared this tiny cabin with his brother’s family of wife and four children.
