We are a concept store in the heart of Helsinki, a home to independent Finnish art, design and craft. The coffee roasted by Helsingin Kahvipaahtimo is always brewing and the themed exhibitions change every month.
Lokal is run by photographer Katja Hagelstam. Inspired to create a gallery shop for Finnish artists and designers, she opened Lokal in April of 2012. It has been growing and changing ever since, showing a mix of recognized and up-and-coming artists. If there is a particular artist from past exhibitions that you are interested in knowing more about, please get in touch!
Lokal also represents Nikari furniture in addition to offering a selection of books, new design and contemporary art.
