Endeavouring to curate the epic scenery of North Carelia into impeccably crafted products, limited editions, high end commercial production and bespoke designs that explore the juxtaposition of Raw Finnish nature, Scandinavian design and a 2.8 billion year old stone.

RawFinnish is a new initiative from traditional Finnish Soapstone manufacture – Hukka Design, teaming up with Creative Director Ido Garini (Studio Appétit)

The first
collection of RawFinnish
will celebrate craftsmanship,
texture and form.

Creative Director Ido Garini has created an exciting variety of products that showcase the diversity in function and aesthetics the stone can achieve. The collection features innovative tableware of striking forms and different uses, harnessing the thermal qualities of the soapstone to retain heat and cold, alongside bespoke homeware in dialogue with Finnish nature, botany and weather.

Soapstone is a creation of mighty forces over 2.8 billion years ago: Moving continents, volcanic eruptions and forming mountains. It was the ice age itself that leveled down the Carelian mountain range. There, hidden, the stone waited for tens of thousands of years before man understood how to wield its beauty and strength.

The stone is extremely dense and non porous making it ideal for carving, granting it unique qualities in terms of function: the 100% natural material works as a thermal retainer keeping both heat and cold and used as anything from a pizza oven stone to an alternative ice form.
