Pentik shapes the mindscape of Finnish homes


Pentik – Beauty to every home

Pentik is an interior design retailer that surrounds us and our homes with Northern beauty and cosiness. We love to create inspiring homes by combining Finnish handicrafts with our most beautiful discoveries from around the world.
Our Basic collection is complemented with changing seasonal collections four times a year. These collections offer versatile products for various interiors and table settings. Delicate spring, fresh summer, spicy autumn and atmospheric Christmas inspire the themes and colours of our seasonal collections.
Our ceramics factory started in Posio in 1971. Today its annual production is a fair 300,000 objects.

What we bring to KOTI


We are proud to bring our newest Posio-made ceramics series – Kallio (Rock), Kivi (Stone) and Usva (Mist) – to Habitare’s KOTI. The new natural forms and hip colours of these tableware covey a strong message in different installations.
Our fresh Usva pattern is present in various interior sets of KOTI. This pattern charms with its soft, ink-blue sorrel silhouette. Also other Pentik interior textiles and products make KOTI even more homey.

Why we love to be a part of this project?


Pentik wants to be present in the everyday life and celebrations of every home.
With KOTI we can reach both new customers and customers we already know. We wish to inspire all Habitare visitors to create the most beautiful table settings and atmospheres to their own homes.

Anu Pentik donated her Siivet kantaa (Wings that Carry) installation from Kolme tilaa (Three Rooms) exhibition held in Kunsthalle Helsinki for New Children’s Hospital. This 15 metre-long installation consists of several ceramic wings. ”A human being can grow invisible wings that carry up and forward. I believe this artwork brings hope and strength for small patients and their loved ones. The New Children’s Hospital is the best possible place for it”, says Anu Pentik.
The Chairman of New Children’s Hospital 2017 Support Association and Foundation), Anne Berner, was happy to receive this donation together with Anne Knaster, Executive Director of the Association of Friends of the University Children’s Hospitals, in a donation event arranged in Helsinki on August 7th. ”This visually impressive artwork looks perfect in our New Children’s Hospital and delights both eyes and mind. It is wonderful to receive this kind of donation from a significant Finnish artist”, comments Knaster.

New Children’s Hospital, purposed for both Helsinki Metropolitan Area and the whole Finland, will rise phase by phase in the Meilahti area in the end of 2017 and by the end of June 2018. During 2018, the hospital will open its doors. Also children, their families and the hospital staff have participated in the design of this new hospital.

Anu Pentik (b. 1942) is a Pro Finlandia awarded ceramist and the Founder & Artistic Director of Pentik Oy. In 2012, she was promoted to honorary doctor of the University of Lapland.

Pentik tiles decorate the protected facade of the Helsinki City Theatre

The 2-year renovation of the Helsinki City Theatre has just been completed, and in August the theatre re-opened its doors to the public. The new tiles for its facade were manufactured by Pentik Construction Ceramics. This way the exterior of this protected theatre building remained unchanged. The walls of Elsa, Helsinki City Theatre’s annex completed in 1989, were originally covered with custom-built ceramic tiles made at the Arabia factories. As new equivalents for these original tiles were not available anymore, Pentik Construction Ceramics developed new tiles with Otfried Blümchen who had earlier worked at the Arabia factories.

Finding the perfect recipe for the tiles demanded working with different models for the clay mass, glaze, strength and the looks of the tiles. Pentik produced a neccessary amount of new tiles on a production line set up for this project.
Altogether there are over 20,000 new hand-made ceramic tiles on the facade of the Helsinki City theatre. The entire facade opening towards Eläintarhanlahti will be illuminated, and the lightning can be adjusted according to the time of the day, events as well as atmospheres.

Pentik is known worldwide for its top-quality ceramic products and Northern design. Since the very beginning, clay has been at the core of Pentik’s expertise. More than four decades in the business have taught the family how versatile clay can be turned into almost anything. Pentik Construction Ceramics manufactures ceramic tiles for unique facade and indoor construction projects.

Ceramic specialty tiles are ideal for high-standard new buildings and renovation construction projects where design and production of the tiles requires uncompromising expertise and flexibility. The design and clay recipe of these technically high-quality tiles are always tailored to meet the wishes of our customers. The tiles are manufactured at Pentik’s ceramics factory at Posio.
