So what’s the deal with Telliskivi?
It was built in the Soviet era as an industrial complex. And as you know, former industrial sites make for some inspiring locations.
Now Telliskivi, or Creative District as its known, is the pulse of creative Tallinn with the industrial shell giving a hub for artsy and rustic vibes. With a healthy dose of industrial chic to make it all feel lived in – in a good way.
Suites: What’s out there is in here
As in all our locations, the suites have been inspired by the local neighbourhood. So when you step into our Telliskivi suites, you will see the local vibe from the neighbourhood and Estonia splattered all over the room.
It’s there where you sleep. You’ll get some high quality shut-eye with the Matri beds. The premium mattress and sleep gear brand’s beds are made locally in Estonia exclusively from certified European materials. So very kosher indeed. On top of that their factory runs on solar panels for most of the year (it ain't always sunny in Tallinn).
Splashing more colour around the suite are some locals and their kick-ass art.
First off, let us introduce you to Meru. Meru is an Estonian artist living in the UK, whose art has been spotted in the Telliskivi streets as well as at international venues including Frieze Art Fair.
Prints by TM is the Telliskivi-based artist family of Tõnis and Mariliis Kenkmaa whose graphics showcase wonky and shaken scenes from everyday life. Just the way Bob W likes it.
QBA epitomizes Telliskivi. The local artist, painter and DJ is true-blue Telliskivi art, really at the core of what this neighbourhood representz! (embed link
