Amu Song & Johan Olin – Secret Shop ‘SALAKAUPPA’ Helsinki

A sweet film from our friends at Crane.tv. Amu Song and Johan Olin, designers and artists run COMPANY, a store dedicated to unusual, hard to find products. They recently set up SALAKAUPPA or ‘Secret Shop’, a compact retail space in Helsinki selling their eccentric wares. Central to everything they do is the idea of ‘Local’, sourcing traditional and modern goods created in the surrounding area such as woven slippers or wooden toys, an ethos that sets them apart from the usual.
