About

As the name suggests Lahti Ski Museum focuses on skiing and other winter sports and their importance for Finland and Lahti. The museum is located inside a sports complex next to the ski-jumping hill in Lahti.

Goals and Challenges

Our task in Lahti Ski Museum was to produce sturdy showcases for the Ski Museum that can later be used for multiple exhibitions. As the layouts of the exhibitions never stay the same, we decided to create interchangeable and easily moveable furniture and came up with initial technical drawings that proved the furniture to be sturdy while still perfectly modular.

Highlights

The keywords for producing the showcases and structures were – natural materials, durability, flexibility, changeability and moveability. Altogether 30 showcases and structures were produced. The project was done in good and smooth cooperation with Pentagon Design and the client.
