In 2015, continuing the two year co-operation with Aaltonaut, the paint manufacturer Tikkurila gave a summer assignment for two Aaltonaut students. The goal was to bring an outside opinion to painting and find fresh solutions to painting tool development. The Aaltonauts spent their summer working at the Aalto Design Factory and looked in to the problems that the customers face with their painting projects. The product concepts were presented to Tikkurila with great success and the Aaltonaut-Tikkurila collaboration will continue in the future!
