Kristiina Hataaja at her studio. 


I had not thought about the look 
of the woman behind the stunning 
Insta art account @kristiina.se

that by following her 
sculpture process and 

enjoying the shapes she was creating I had somehow imagined someone much older and not so young and gorgeous. I was wrong. 
Here was Kristina Hataaja.

Sadly our first meeting was over plagiarism. Kristiina came to 
my studio on Södermalm.  
She as well as I have created 
unique products that had been copied 
and sold by competition 
although everyone can 
see that its 
a copy

Since bringing in the law in this area has not proved a succsessful endeavour even for world brands what strategy  can you follow to protect your interest was what our fika was centered around. 

Therefore it makes me very proud 
to present 
Kristiina Haataja 
that gave us the permission to  displaying her unique work at 

Halmens Hus in my exhibit 
Straw in interiors 2019. 

Halmens Hus is located in the picturesq Dalsland town of Bengtsfors 
known for lakes, channels & waterways.

Here is first a Swedish 
and then an english presentation 


Kristiina Haataja är en konstnär och designer baserad i Stockholm. Den mänskliga anatomin tar sig uttryck i hennes skulpturer där hon har utvecklat en stil som är unika i sina former, men råa och strukturerade i sina ytor.
Inspirationen till verken kommer från hennes intresse för konsthistoria där hon låter antikens kroppar möta kubismens strama linjer. Därför kallar hon sin stil för Antik kubism, en sammanflätning av dessa två element. Skulpturernas olika karaktärer såsom drömmaren, tänkaren eller det enskilda ansiktet låter betraktaren visionera vad de kan uttrycka. Skulpturerna har också namn som har speciella betydelser.
Kristiina har under åren exponerats i en rad internationella tidningar och figurerat i olika sociala kanaler. Hennes konst har agenturer och showroom i nordiska städer såsom Oslo och Helsingfors, men även i Europa, Amsterdam och Milano, samt i Sidney, Australien. Skulpturer har också köpts in till större residens exempelvis gamla anrika hotellet Lutetia i centrala Paris samt slottet Château de L’Estang i Sancerre via hennes agent Atelier 27 i Paris.
