Qompendium is an evolving and ever-changing platform for philosophy, art, culture and science, represented by a series of print publications: magazines, books and monographs. Furthermore, it is enriched by a gallery concept, a work shop and a fast-moving online portal.
Located in the Junction, the shop makes its home in a white Victorian building with a modern interior by local architect firm Studio Junction. Mjölk is a lifestyle store focusing on everyday life to find inspiration for the products they carry.
Their smaller products can be used without thought, or quietly admired: simple satisfaction of functionality and durability.
Mjölk specializes in Scandinavia: soft, quiet snowy forests and streets in the winter; glittery, blinding sunlight on colorful buildings during the summer; Fika (coffee break) at the Konditori, with a kaffe and Napoleon pastry in hand; trolling the Helsinki open-air markets for treasures that is the North to them.
Mjölk’s collection is curated by owners John Baker and Juli Daoust.
