Oodi art carpet consept

Oodi is the new central library of Helsinki; a living meeting place at the Kansalaistori square, right in the heart of Helsinki. Koolmat got the honour to create the art carpet concept of the public floor, as well as the seven unique art carpets for the reading oasis and the children’s area. The project was carried out in cooperation with ALA architects and illustrators Laura Merz, Marika Maijala, Aamu Song & Johan Olin (Company) and Matti Pikkujämsä. The art carpet concept of Oodi won the Hopeahuippu award of the creative design competition Vuoden Huiput 2018. The criteria for winning the award were, among others, a natural connection with the environment and Finnish literature. In addition, the jury appreciated the ability of these large and impressive works to bring joy and give subjects for the thoughts.
