LUX 2024 - Marimekko X Ateneum


The celebrated LUX Helsinki light festival took place at venues across the Finnish capital during January, with a highlight being the specially created projection mapped visual display onto the intricate façade of the National Gallery Ateneum. The festival was staged by Events Helsinki, which brought in Capital AV and Capital Creative to deliver technical production and visual consultancy for the Ateneum projections.

The animation work was designed by Katri Tikkanen and commissioned to celebrate the 60th anniversary of famous Finnish clothing brand Marimekko’s cherished design pattern, “Unikko”. Marimekko and Ateneum joined forces as major sponsors of the festival, making the projection project a reality. The results were a bright, beautifully executed tribute to Finnish design and visual arts, nodding to neo-impressionalist painter Alfred William Finch’s pointillist work Orchard at La Louvière and the Unikko pattern.
