Bold colours were very much in the spirit of the 1960s for clothing and interior design alike. In anticipation of this, Kaija and Erkki had designed a wood-colouring method of their own in the 1950s; so responding to the demands of the time was easy. Aarikka’s wooden jewellery, candle-holders, and felt blankets were bold enough in colour to win many hearts in the promised decade of colourful synthetic materials.
Kaija was very broadminded when it came to materials, and she designed the partition curtain named ‘Discus’ from acrylic discs. Glass beads were used to create tapestries, and brass and wrought iron were employed for candlesticks.
