PLAYING WITH LESS
The Kiila collection by Daniel Rybakken
With Kiila, his first furniture collection for Artek, Daniel Rybakken breaks new ground. Rybakken works slowly in his studio situated inside a 19th century former thread factory. He takes on only a few projects a year. ‘I want all my projects to be worthy of my collection,’ he says. ‘I only work with what I am inspired by, what interests me.’ Research plays an important role in his process.

MEET OUR CONTRIBUTOR - Barbara
We are excited to tell you about our newest contributor, Barbara.
Barbara, has a passion for nature, life, zen, beauty and pretty things, spotting trends and social media. She knows the ins and outs of social media and how to use it.
Her favorite companion is Cacao, friendly, four paws and a Spanish joie de vivre. And most of the scenic catalogue is shot at her own ‘back yard’, a nature and water reserve outside Alkmaar, The Netherlands. Where she captures the beauty of four seasons. This is where she also comes to stay fit and zen because her personal story is a little less happy: in 2011 she was diagnosed with severe Crohn’s disease and has had 34 surgeries since then and counting.
This changed her life 180 degrees. And also put things in another perspective. "When you don’t have your health, it’s all in the little things. The little smiles, a sparkle of sunlight, a nice smelling candle, the love of friends and family, a comfortable home, human connection, a pretty song, and being resilient."
From now on Barbara will share her view on mind topics, health and the ins and outs of social media.
