Finnish design is rooted in a democratic approach that sees design as being for all, rather than a luxury for the few, with a focus on function, modernism and material. Organized by the Design Museum in Helsinki Finland, NORTHERN STARS present exemplary objects of Finnish design, including textiles, ceramics, glass and furniture. The show features the work of the most well-known names in Finnish design, including Alavar Aalto and Timo Sarpaneva, alongside international brands like Marimekko and Fiskars.
