Casuarina in Helsinki: A Poetic Concept Shop

August 15, 2016

After traveling around the world for several years, Viveka Uusivirta opened Casuarina in 1998 with a view toward bringing “objects and inspiration from my travels, mixing East and West, ethnic and modern, old and new.” Pieces from Asia and Paris antiques fairs mingle with upholstered pieces from Gervasoni and lighting from Ay Illuminate. Come take a look.
