The Lip Balm – Finnish style

IMG_7834

Mona Isotupa’s Pine Lip Balm concept has won the FDS Award design competition, organised by online store Finnish Design Shop.

The winning design is an ethically and ecologically produced pine lip balm, where the product and packaging form a natural unity: the container is crafted of Finnish pinewood and one of the key ingredients of the balm is organic pine essential oil.

 

 

 

Aurora Domes, Finland

Specialist geodesic dome designers Freedomes have sited a pair of bijoux all white hi-tech igloos by Lake Torassieppijarvi in Muonio’s Pallas-Yllästunturi National Park. The completely insulated interiors are predictably Scandi-chic with a reindeer and husky fur-theme to drive home the illusion of remote adventurism. The entire north-facing section of the dome is sheathed in reinforced glass, all the better to catch the shimmering northern lights which, thanks to the region’s low light pollution, is best seen in early April. source : Wallpaper
