50 YEARS OF STORIES


This year we are celebrating our 50th anniversary. The past decades have been full of stories, great craftsmanship and design. We'd like to share some of the old stories and quite many new ones with you during the next months.

Our 2012 PROJECT "12 DESIGNS FOR NATURE" told about the Nikari philosophy and design ideology: how we delicately manufacture furniture made of Northern European wood, here in Fiskars. Number 12 was clearly the number of the year - hence we asked twelve designers or design studios to study our philosophy and give their comments to it in a form of a wooden product. The project was a collaboration with WWF Finland and part of the sales profit is still donated to promote sustainable forestry and forest biodiversity. Read more in our newsletter October stories
