In Stockholm, “Encounters With Aalto”
Furniture & Lighting
The Stockholm gallery Jacksons, which specializes in 20th Century Scandinavian design, is currently featuring a mouth-watering exhibition at its Berlin branch, featuring the furniture designs of Alvar Aalto. Encounters With Aalto, a collaboration with Artek, focuses on wood masterworks from the gallery’s own collection of rare and original furniture by the Finnish great, placed alongside vintage designs still in production by Artek—including timeless wonders A110 Pendant Lamp and Screen 100. Finnish artist Ola Kolehmainen injects a contemporary Nordic touch into the exhibit with a suite of photographic compositions featuring imagery directly inspired by Aalto’s work. Encounters With Aalto will be on view at Jacksons in Berlin through April 26th.
