Lokal is a pioneering concept store and gallery in downtown Helsinki. In 2012, the city was celebrating the year as the design capital of the world, but Helsinki still lacked a venue that showcases the most exquisite local art, design and craftsmanship. Lokal was founded to fill the void. And as the name implies, everything in the store is made in Helsinki or nearby.
People quickly learnt to love the homey atmosphere of the gallery, and Lokal established itself as a significant cultural player: the curator of best creative work as well as a facilitator and agent for up-and-coming designers and artists. In 2017, their work was awarded the prestigious Finnish State Prize in Design.Browse lokahelsinki.com
The art of craftsmanship
The Kuudes-made identity has stood the test of time: the quirky combination of different fonts on a clear white surface is still as relevant as ever. The identity reflects the products that bring people to Lokal: hand-made objects made to last a lifetime.
Letters on the loose
Lokal’s lifestyle label, Lokal Kollektion, boasts homeware and other products made for a simply better life. The individual letters tie the collection together and bring a finishing touch to the elegant packaging.
