The presentation of Finnish design and architecture in order to commemorate 100 years of Finnish independence. It presents selected, beloved classics of Finnish design and architecture alongside less well-known gems from the beginning of the country’s independence until the present. The four seasons, distant location and rugged natural conditions have inspired designers to search for a simple idiom as well as innovative, practical solutions to the challenges of everyday life. It is these characteristics and the designers’ many, fresh approaches that form the core of the exhibition.
The exhibition is articulated around eight central themes rooted in Finnish nature and society: Silence, Landscape, Equality, Light&Dark, Manmade, Tradition, Growth, Community. It builds bridges between the past and the present, shedding light on both the similarity and the differences between design and architecture.
The admission is free
