In 2012 Nikari asked twelve designers or design studios to give their response to Nikari’s design philosophy in the form of a product.
The project was called Project 2012 Designs for Nature: Nikari cooperates with WWF Finland and part of the sales price is donated to protecting rainforests and forests globally.
