Internationally renowned British designer Jay Osgerby visited Estonia
Recently, we had the pleasure of hosting British designer Jay Osgerby, whose visit to Estonia was driven by his constant quest for inspiration. We dived deep into the creative world of this exceptional designer as he shared his vision and experiences with our team, as well as with Estonian designers and architects.
Osgerby expressed his fascination with Estonia’s rich history and unique cultural heritage and was thrilled to explore local art and design trends up close.
