On Wednesday night we hosted an exhibition for Claesson Koivisto Rune. We are so honored to be presenting their first retrospective in Canada, and debuting “CEREMONY”, the serving set designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune and produced by Mjolk with the expertise of local artisans Alissa Coe, Scott Eunson, and Adrian Kuzyk.

It was such a pleasure to be able to spend time with such a brilliant firm, whose personalities are as equally warm and charming as their work. For those who didn’t have the opportunity to visit the exhibition during the opening night, the show will continue in its full installation until January 31st, and after that a stripped down version of the exhibition will continue until February 8th.

CEREMONY set: trays in pure brass, copper, and blackened steel reversible with Canadian hard maple serving/cutting side. Pitcher: unglazed white porcelain exterior with glazed interior, and bowl / lid in Canadian hard maple.

As our exhibition coincided with Toronto Design Week the Ceremony set won “Best in show – Best new product” from Toronto Design Offsite, as well as a “Designlines Loves tag”.
