Fiskars is one of the official partners of the Finland 100 project of the Prime Minister’s Office. To celebrate the centenary of Finland, Fiskars will restore a unique area of natural beauty, Dagmar park, and present it as a gift to Finland, Finns and friends of Finland. The park will be restored to its full glory in a joint effort by Fiskars staff.
Dagmar park on the Hanko peninsula brings together all of Finnish nature’s rugged beauty, from the forest to the sea, sandy beaches and unspoilt vegetation. Enter the very heart of the park and you’ll find Dagmar spring, bubbling with fresh water from the depths of the earth. Fiskars, too, has its roots in trees and water, the lifeblood of Fiskars ironworks operations in the 17th century. Nature and its seasons have been a source of inspiration to our product design throughout the decades.
The Fiskars Group and its brands, Arabia, Fiskars, Hackman and Iittala, will also honour the centenary of Finland with an anniversary collection, to be launched on this website towards the start of next year.
Our wish is for everyone to experience the serenity of Dagmar park, either in person or virtually. The virtual reality (VR) film of the park offers a 360-degree view of its landscape. Watching the film through VR glasses will take you straight to the height of Finnish summer, flying above the treetops, marvelling at nature’s beauty. You can also take a dive under the sea.
This unique VR experience of Finnish nature will travel across Finland over the centenary year, bringing the peace and quiet of Dagmar park within everyone’s reach through VR technology. The up-to-date tour schedule and locations can be found by clicking on the black button on the right-hand side of the page.
Follow us both on Facebook and on this website – you will be the first to know what’s happening in Dagmar Park and discover tips for enjoying its beauty. Stay tuned, as this is just the beginning of our centenary celebrations!
Fiskars’ roots are in the forests and waters that made the founding of Fiskars Ironworks possible in the 17th Century. As ever, nature and the seasons continue to inspire our product designs. Fiskars Group brands Arabia, Fiskars, Hackman and Iittala celebrate Finland’s centenary with a range of iconic gift products, available only during 2017.
