Rafaela Seppälä’s personal Collection is legally and financially separate from the Foundation. The Collection comprises over 700 works of contemporary art from all over the world as well as modern Finnish design collected over a period of 20 years.

Both the Foundation’s and the Collection’s name – Tiftö – comes from an island in the Baltic Sea dear to Rafaela’s and her family’s heart. The island serves as an anchor in Finland to their international lives and is their “Happy Place”.
