Oot-Oot Design Shop and Lounge

Oot-Oot EMOTION Design Shop

As part of the Design Night festival, the Oot-Oot Design Shop is open on September 24 at Roseni Str. 8. An eclectic selection of the works of several known and unknown talented Estonian authors is available on the shelves and in the drawers for a period of three days. The Oot-Oot Design Shop offers contemporary products with dashing ideas and original design. Among other products, the shop has the “Go into the Forest” series of wallpapers and toy animals by Karin Luuk, which the young fashion designer has supplemented with brooches and breastpins that follow the theme. The shop also offers fascinating notebooks, hangers and picture frames from the highly beloved domestic trademark of Paperdolls, as well as the doll brooches which can already be considered as classics of the Paperdolls brand. The event also features some long-awaited new products from the Sssprint silk printing house and Pille Jüriso, the unique garments by Donkey Hot, the marvellously nostalgic ceramics by Raili Keiv, and much more. Several, yet less known designers like Eiko Ojala, Maria Sopina, Helen Valk and others add excitement to the overall environment. From the range of original Oot-Oot products, the easyLIGHT system and the first batch of Moodulsüsteem lighting fixtures are sold. In addition to the works of Estonian authors, the Oot-Oot Design shop offers guessing, surprises, discoveries and positive emotions to each and every one of its visitors.
The doors are open on Thursday from 10 to 18, on Friday and Saturday from 10 to 20 and on Sunday from 10 to 18. See you there! :)

It was a very inspiring and successful event for us.

We have expanded our product assortment with a few new products,
which were first presented at
the Gdynia Design Days in Poland:

You can find additional designs inside,
so have fun discovering the secret contents of the notebooks.
Notebooks come in size A5 and various colors.

We made some hand printed T-shirts as well.
The shirts are silkscreen printed,
each with a unique print on it.
Perfect to wear with skinny jeans or leggings. 100% cotton.

PaperDolls' designer Virge Loo is back from China!


We are happy, that our designer Virge Loo is back from China,
where she was studying at Yunnan Normal University.

Yes, it's great to be back! I was studying Modern Chinese at
Yunnan Normal University in Kunming "The City of Eternal Spring",
which is in Southeast China.

So, how is it to be back in Estonia again, after so long time in China?
Well, a bit odd at first. Everybody speaks the language I understand and
people tend to look the same. After being away for almost a year, I have to
get used to the life here again, which luckily is easier
than the other way around.

What has been most inspiring for you?
The differences in nature, sounds and light I experienced in China.
The light in Estonia is so blue and the shadows are so deep,
I never noticed that before...
The way things look from another angle, the distinctions in culture...
But generally people and things are the same no matter where you are.

What do you miss the most?
I miss the good and fun people I met there, the food, the weather...
I miss the opportunity to speak chinese outside of home,
to hear the language and trying to put the puzzle together :)

You gave PaperDolls brooches as a present in a wedding in China.
How did people react there on the brooches?

People were very surprised (in a good way) and welcomed the Dolls warmly.
My teacher hopes we can start selling our Dolls in China, so that her children
could play with them some day.
And compliments were given to my name card, which seemed
a piece of art by itself.

Do you find similarities in Chinese and Estonian design?
And PaperDolls design?

Yes, there are some similarities between the Chinese and
PaperDolls design. The Chinese are very fond of small, cute, lovely
and shiny things...
Things that have a good impact on you, not as much as how useful they are :)
In China, you can buy all kinds of necklaces, small bags, socks, notebooks
and so on, which are products (or copies) of famous design brands
(though mostly western). They like characters like Hello Kitty,
Paul Frank's Monkey, Pocca and other cartoon characters.
I don't know much about their own design, but they really seem to like
the western style and therefore, copy it. I know many local design studios
recruit westerners... If PaperDolls would become a well-known brand
in Europe, it could easily sell in China, especially in bigger cities like
Beijing and Shanghai, which are more modern and have a higher standard
of living.

What´s next, you've got tons of new ideas to work on?
Of course :) I will have an exhibition at the end of December this year.
It's about the time I spent there and of what I experienced. The exhibition
"Lu Wei* from China"
will display a series of drawings in mixed techniques.
I'm pretty sure the chinese influences
won't fade away for some time and will have some impact on my design work
for PaperDolls as well :)

* Lu Wei is my Chinese name
