Robin Falck

The Finnish renewable energy company Neste approached Robin in the spring of 2018 regarding their campaign Journey to Zero. They wanted to promote their new fossil-free products and sustainable options to the Finnish market. Together they needed to find a theme to discuss the subject. Summer cottages or “kesämökki” is a cornerstone of the Finnish culture. It was something all Finns can relate to. So he set out to design the most sustainable cabin for said culture. A small summer cottage concept challenging the current norm. Small, leaving the smallest possible footprint. No permanent concrete base. Energy from solar panels and the kitchen runs on renewable diesel made out of waste. For the campaign, they built it on the small island just outside the Helsinki citycentre, Vallisaari.

During August the cabin as available for rent through airbnb and was sold out in the first 2 hours. The campaign was a huge success and got a coverage in all the main medias and magazines. Everything from Dwell, Vouge and Archdaily to Dezeen and Lonely planet. The cabin is still on Vallisaari and will be available for rent next summer!

Robin Falck

Robin Falck is a Helsinki born and bred designer. Ever curious and constantly learning and mastering new skills to implement in his work. In his mind design is a behavior, it’s second-nature. Robin is at his core a craftsman and you can usually find him in his studio with a tool in his hand, working on another prototype. His approach to design is tactile, simple and strives to tidy things up as elegantly as possible. He strives to take away and simplifying the unnecessary rather than adding new problems. His love for products and equipment that lasts is one of his major driving factors. Robin pushes himself to make his designs as timeless and sustainable as possible. Whether it’s art direction, product design or graphic design, the core values of his creative process remains the same –dedication, quality consciousness and a commitment to deliver. Robin spends a lot time studying the problem or subject to end up with a more refined and better result.
