Marimekko, Ittala, and more—Finland established itself as a world leader in design in the late 19th century and continues to influence designers today. The country’s flourishing design culture has played an integral part in the nation’s economy and international identity. This beautifully designed study considers the impact of Finnish modernism and its main protagonists and presents superb examples of contemporary design. Through discussions of industry and culture, training and education, designers and products, this book thoroughly demonstrates how design operates in the tension between art and industry, both serving and enhancing everyday life. Numerous photos, posters, and illustrations portray every imaginable aspect of the rich diversity found in Finnish design.
Pekka Korvenmaa is professor of design and culture at the Aalto University, Helsinki.
