TOM OF FINLAND: 100 YEARS
Henzel Studio is proud to highlight its partnership with Tom of Finland Foundation in honor of what would have been Tom’s 100th Birth Year. The artist’s centennial has been honored with a number of exhibitions and collaborations, amongst them THE DARKROOM / TOM OF FINLAND; exhibition currently on view at Fotografiska in Stockholm, and a Tom of Finland fashion capsule collection with the British fashion house J.W. Anderson.

Henzel Studio’s partnership with Tom of Finland Foundation was ignited by the unique environment and interior elements that make TOM House. Located in Echo Park, Los Angeles, it is home of Tom of Finland Foundation, guardians of the artist’s body of work and living archive for the erotic arts, and where Tom permanently lived for the last decade of his life. Founded in 1984, its a place where Tom’s relentlessly butch aesthetic and drawings mingle with different styles of décor, artifacts, rotating art displays and open air installations. It is a place that is marked by a community that disarms shame and judgment, and promotes Tom’s message of encouraging respect, acceptance and love through art.

The Henzel Studio x Tom of Finland collection consists of 12 hand tufted rugs, 2 hand knotted rugs and 3 decorative pillows.

"The range offers a new perspective one Tom of Finland’s works and their modernity, affirming the artist’s great relevance in art and design today”.
Rosa Bertoli for WALLPAPER
