    Cases: Exhibition Curation

    2019, 2018, 2017


    Tikau curates yearly an ethical exhibition area and its program for Habitare, Finland’s largest interior decoration and design fair. 

    The area showcased companies and organizations that place the principles of design for sustainable development in the heart of their activities - bringing together actors and products that present ethical diversity through different examples.

    In 2018 Tikau got an award by Sisustustoimittajat ry with a honorable mention - the best fair stand of Habitare 2018.
