Kristiina Karinen

Kristiina Karinen handcrafts her one-of-a-kind pieces and small series from the finest Italian yarns. Her creations’ characteristic features include playful variations of surface textures. Also, by limiting her color spectrum to a variety of gray hues, plus black and white, she puts the main emphasis on the form of her pieces. The alteration between even and slightly sculptural surfaces makes for a lively knitwear design and a distinct silhouette that is as feminine as it is sensuous. In 2014, one of her creations was purchased by Leipzig’s Grassi Museum, and she won the Berlin Zeughausmesse Fair’s Applied Arts Award. In 2016, she was one of the main prize-winners of the Art Aurea Awards.
