As you may or may not know, Scandinavian design is huge in Japan right now. That’s why it’s only fitting that Finnish heavyweights artek, famous for their stools, and marimekko, famous for their fabrics, collaborate in Japan for an installation. “Be Honest” will feature an installation using Alvar Aalto ‘s Model No. 60 stool (circa 1933), as well as reinterpretations of his stools by marimekko designers. Taking place at SPIRAL in Tokyo, the show will open this Saturday and run for 2 weeks.
