Fazer Visitor Centre
with Ateljé Sotamaa
Collaboration as Senior designer with the design office Atelje’ Sotamaa working at the entire design process inclunding custom and site specific artworks, products and furniture, from concept to realisation.
“ Fazer opened an internationally noteworthy Visitor Centre aimed at offering experiences for all the senses and is a first of its kind in Finland. Ateljè Sotamaa had the pleasure of designing many of those experiences. The exhibition with its artworks, the shop, signage, clothing and even select tableware were designed by Ateljé Sotamaa in cooperation with Fazer employees. Every aspect with an impact on the visitor experience was created exclusively for Fazer. The aim was to create a total work of art and seamless visitor experience within the K2S designed building.
The concept for the design of the exhibition is based on Aristoteles' peripatetic school of philosophy where people walked and discussed the world through the objects they encountered. In the case of Fazer Visitor Centre, professional guides move through the building with people and use the artworks for story telling. “
