At the beginning of the summer, MORICO designer Tytti and MORICO summer trainee Anniina Tiri started designing a piece for Re:formi demolition art house next door in Pikisaari, Oulu. Tytti had stored MORICO cutting waste, textile bits and pieces in different sizes, colors and fabrics. The piece was named as Tasapainotila.
The soon to be demolished Re:formi exhibition is held at an old vocational school. You can find the brick building at the end of Pikisaarentie, from the bay side of the island. The Re:formi includes wide range of art styles, from street art to contemporary art, from graffiti murals to textile installations.

Tasapainotila – Equilibrium state
The lightness of the floating details in the work combines with the flowing form of the painting to form part of the space. The design language of the work is inspired by, among other things, the art of origami. In the background, there is a reflection on the state of the clothing industry, and in its creation, the cutting waste of the slow fashion brand MORICO from Pisaari has been utilized.
