The new RETRO -designed by Minna Haapakoski
May we introduce the new glass door model in our collection, RETRO, designed by Minna Haapakoski!
The new model was born from the need of designer Minna Haapakoski to have a sauna door for her vacation apartment.
“I got a message from Minna at the end of January, she was looking for a slightly more special sauna door for their vacation apartment and noticed our ability to customize the patterns on the glass doors. The beautiful pattern designed by Minna worked so wonderfully on the glass that we definitely wanted to include it in our collection as a permanent model,” says Essi Sundman from Essis By Lasilinkki
“We are particularly excited and proud of this launch in these challenging times. The importance of working together has been emphasized here. We are really happy with both the result and the cooperation with Minna! ”
Designer Minna Haapakoski’s thoughts on our project.
Often, design can be driven by need, be it my client’s need or my own. My husband and I built a vacation home called HUVILLA. In the beginning I dreamed of having a traditional bottled glass door between the sauna and the bathroom. Since the architecture of our cottage has a touch of 60s in it. It turned out that the bottled glass could not be tempered.
But then actually Essi Sundman suggested that they could make the door according to my own design. After that I decided to find a picture of a pattern, I designed years ago. Could glass bend to this?
At Essis Collection they were immediately inspired by my pattern. And in no time, I got the lovely model pieces in my hands. The pattern eventually bent into two different designs. I think the pattern is extremely beautiful, especially in colored glasses.
I also designed a knob suitable for the design of the door, which was then made by the workshop of Asemakylä.
In fact, I am extremely pleased with this outcome. I hope that my design RETRO brings joy to you as well.
