'Meteor Ottoman' by Klaus Haapaniemi and Mia Wallenius for Established & Sons

Klaus Haapaniemi, the celebrated Finnish artist and designer, author of the playful folkloric print for the famous ‘Taika’ dinnerware series, has created this collection of whimsically printed accessories in collaboration with Mia Wallenius for the British label Established & Sons.

'Mammoth Tapestry' by Klaus Haapaniemi and Mia Wallenius for Established & Sons

Exhibited during this year’s Milan Salone del Mobile, ‘Volcano, Mammoth, Meteor’ is a vividly-coloured series comprising a tapestry, an ottoman and a rug illustrated with quasi-childlike imaginative prints inspired by the cultural heritage of designers’ native Finland. Referencing Mysticism and Nordic folklore, each of the pieces features bold, expressive scenes capturing the continuously altering magical world of Scandinavian fables.
