Content
The exhibition is largely divided into two parts: Design and Contemporary Art. The Design section presents an overview of the history of Finnish modernism as well as Finnish furniture and crafts that provide a glimpse into the height of the movement. Finnish designs, which have been developed according to the needs of the people, help visualize the close relationship between nature and the Finnish people’s daily lives. Their furniture and crafts have had a significant impact on the quality of life through their functions, while boasting remarkable aesthetic value at the same time. The exhibition was organized in a way that allows the visitors to see the design history of Finland, which is arguably an important part of its cultural heritage, through the works by Finnish designers including Alvar Aalto, Kaj Franck, Tapio Wirkkala, Timo Sarpaneva, Maija Isola, Vuokko Eskolin-Nurmesniemi, and Pekka Paikkari.
