Estonian Design House
Solaris has long been an ambassador of design artistry. It’s home to a number of stores offering some amazing works of design. One of them is Estonian Design House, which brings together the creations of Estonian artists, a hundred or so of whom are represented in the store.
From shelves in the speckled black and white of birch bark to minimalist jewellery and clothing in traditional patterns and colours, local artists skilfully weave messages and symbols into their works that Estonians will recognise and understand. At the same time, they’re all over global trends: repurposing, short supply chains and an all-natural emphasis are characteristic of the work of contemporary Estonian designers.
The range of items available here includes furniture, lighting, textiles, accessories, jewellery and fashion.
