FUTURO X LA KIVA
When I was a kid, there where few design items which came to my knowledge the very first time and I was totally impressed. One of those was Futuro house. Adults and adulthood seemed quite boring but then there were handful of designers who created objects, even a house, which blew my mind and I could find interesting. I think it gave me another perspective. Kids need more playful adults in their lives, that’s for sure! So you can imagine that i was quite excited when exhibition centre Weegee asked me to design Futuro earrings for them.
Matti Suuronen designed Futuro 1969 when his friend needed a ski lodge. I wanted to make the earrings like the house but not too obvious. Futuros vibrant yellow and deep red are super 60s and I wanted to ad few extra colors to get more timeless colour palette. With fun shapes, bold characters and sassy colours you feel the energy of the time; playful and definitely not too serious.
