Our lives are filled with objects. Everyday things used in everyday settings, they are our constant companions. They should be made with care and built to last, treated with respect and even affection. They should be natural and simple, sturdy, and safe — anaesthetic fulfilment of our practical needs. They should, in short, be things of beauty.

The exhibition showcased a large collection of carefully selected objects - unique in their sense of craftsmanship, quality, details, and function. The unique exhibition had a focus on the genuine craftsmanship, the beauty of everyday objects, light, and surfaces in our everyday life.
