Design & Interiors

Lokal is an award-winning concept store and gallery in the heart of Helsinki. Our philosophy is living with art and objects that matter. With our philosophy in mind, we present themed group exhibitions in our gallery space and provide beautiful and timeless pieces in our shop.

Lokal is run by photographer Katja Hagelstam. Inspired to create a space where to showcase the works of Finnish artists and designers, she opened Lokal in April 2012. It has been growing and changing ever since, showing a mix of recognised as well as up-and-coming artists. Lokal is also a Helsinki retailer of highly acclaimed Fiskars-based furniture brand Nikari.
