Summer of 2023: new logo and new restaurant
In the summer of 2023, the visitor services at Söderlångvik Manor will be stepping up a gear.
At the same time as the new CEO Annika Jansson takes up her post, the manor is launching its new – or rather, newly restored – logo. And in early May, the manor’s new restaurateur, Sami Tallberg, will open the doors of the new Ateljé Sami Tallberg x Söderlångvik.
The evolution of the visitor industry at the estate is also highlighted visually, through the reinvention av a previous logo designed by Erik Bruun. It has been subtly updated to the 2020s by graphic designer Jessica Leino.
When the season starts, the manor will also have a new restaurateur. Ateljé Sami Tallberg x Söderlångvik will open its doors at the same time as the Söderlångvik museum, on 2 May, and will be open every day throughout the summer, with the exception of the Midsummer holiday. Booking a table at the bistro is already possible at ateljesamitallberg.com.
Sami Tallberg is enthusiastic:
– My passion and purpose in life is to make Finland’s nature and all the uniqueness and wildness it offers accessible to everyone. At Ateljé Sami Tallberg x Söderlångvik, we offer guests a fantastic mix of locally produced ingredients and Italian flavours in a wonderful setting.
In recent summers, more and more people have found their way to Söderlångvik, Amos Anderson‘s Italian-inspired summer retreat. Both the main building’s museum, the nature trails in the beautiful archipelago environment and the restaurant’s service have received praise and visitor numbers have been record high. The estate’s owner, Föreningen Konstsamfundet, have high hopes for its development in the coming years.
– We are pleased with the visitor numbers in recent years, but now the goal is both to reach out to new groups and to attract our friends from the past to come again, says Föreningen Konstsamfundet’s CEO and Söderlångvik gård ab’s chairman Stefan Björkman.
Incoming CEO Annika Jansson, who will begin on March 20th 2023, agrees:
– Söderlångvik is a fantastic place, but there is still untapped potential on the estate, and we want to make the most of it, she says.
