Outo visual’s aim in the products is the strong handcrafted combination of interesting design and functionality. I use diversely different wooden materials, painted sections and quality materials in finishing the product. I continuously try out new material combinations and ways to shape wood and metal and the characteristics of the design and appearance of the products originate from these technique and material experiments. The products include all kinds of custom furniture and wooden items including tables, chairs, bookshelves and different kinds of crates and jewellery boxes.
I have a new modern shop in my use in Malmi, Helsinki with versatile possibilities to build any kinds of furniture and wooden items. I use traditional techniques, materials and shapes in my works, but I also combine some more experimental techniques in furniture, such as pyrography with different instruments and visual arts with various methods. There are handmade details, such as custom latches and mechanism in many of my works in which I use reclaimed parts as much as I can. Murals and other visual art projects are close to my heart so don’t hesitate to contact me about these.
I’m a wood artisan based in Helsinki. I have a degree in Product Design and Manufacturing and I made my master’s thesis for Finnish Painters Union about Art collaboration in urban development. In addition I have a minor of art theory in my master’s degree. I got versatile experience in building props and using different kinds of materials in my internship at Helsinki City Theatre.
I’m participating in Bassoradios Noste competition for an exhibition of my paintings and furniture. If you want to support Outo visual and my exhibition, vote at http://www.basso.fi/noste/outo-visual-henri-timperi. Outo visual appreciates your support for the exhibition.
