Finland: Designed Environments

(Nov 17, 2014 - May 29, 2015)


Examples of furnishings, fashion, and craft, as well as architecture and urbanism, illustrate how nearly every aspect of Finnish life incorporates thoughtful design thinking — from city streets and summer homes to fashion and food — and is marked by sensitivity to form and material. The exhibition is the first significant US museum presentation since the 1990s to examine contemporary Finnish design. Organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Arts.
