Christmas Catalogue 2020 2020 Christmas Collection


Curator’s Christmas Greetings The time has come to hop into the holiday mood. This time Taiko’s catalogue focuses on beautiful picks perfect for the holiday season. A piece of art is a special and sustainable gift and you can express a lot of feelings with it. Taiko has made unique Finnish art available to all of us. Being able to buy art online is now more important than ever. Taiko offers a safe way to support local artists during these times. Art creates personality and ambience. It creates interesting decoration details in your home, and artworks often become the focus of the interior design. In an office artworks often embody the values and image of the company. Art sparks conversation and is the most memorable detail of the space. With this catalogue we want to introduce you to some artwork picks from Taiko’s collection and to help you get inspired and find the best fit for you or for your loved ones.

Emmi Kattelus, curator, Master of Arts (M.A)
