For over 140 years iconic Finnish brand, Arabia, has held a strong position in our homes. The new Arabia Flagship Store is first of its kind for this beloved brand. The store is located in the middle of administrative Helsinki, at the end of Esplanade Park. The new Arabia store is joined internally to another Finnish design icon, the Iittala Flagship Store. For Arabia, the aim was to create an atmosphere that resonates with all of us. The store is built up with ideas that reflect the familiarity of Finnish homes.
Alongside the recognizable homewares, there is light wooden floors, Lundia shelving and contemporary wooden furniture from brand´s like Nikari and Woodnotes. In the center of the store stands a beautiful oak kitchen designed by Iittala´s director Harri Koskinen. The store design combines different types of woods, ceramics and colors. The tones vary from Arabia core blue to light mint green shades. As a curiosity, a handmade Arabia ceramic logo, now attached to the counter, was found in Arabia factory´s treasure chests. For this prominent location, the logo was brought back to limelight and is now seen both inside and outside the store.
