Design from Finland
Artichouse was granted to use the Design from Finland certificate in early 2013. The Design from Finland mark granted by the association for Finnish Work is a recognition for design. Finnish design is very distinct. A high level of knowledge, craftsmanship, R&D, uniqueness, functionality, aesthetics, and user centred approach all co-exist in Finnish design. The right to use the Design From Finland symbol requires that Finnish design influences significantly the competitiveness of the products or services of the company.
Artichouse is a Key Flag Symbol product
At the end of 2012, Artichouse was granted the right to bear the Key Flag Symbol of the Association for Finnish Work.
The right to use the Key Flag Symbol was granted based on the following:
- The Artichouse design is 100% Finnish
- The wood and other raw materials and packaging materials used by Artichouse are 100% Finnish
- All Artichouse log houses are manufactured in Finland at the company’s own factory in Sodankylä.
