Finland: Designed Environments
May 10, 2014 - August 17, 2014
U.S. Bank Gallery
Marvel at the explosion of creativity in Finnish design over the last 15 years. “Finland: Designed Environments” presents a selection of the most elegant, artistic, and thought-provoking objects and projects by Finnish designers, craftspeople, and architects. These objects share an inherent practicality, but are thoughtfully designed for an elevation of the user’s experience.
The exhibition encompasses furnishings, fashion, and craft, as well as architecture and urbanism. It also includes submissions from the World Design Capital Helsinki 2012 (a bi-annual international designation awarded by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design).
Organized by the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
Support provided by the Consulate General of Finland in New York, the American-Scandinavian Foundation, and Finlandia Foundation National.
