Echoes – 100 Years in Finnish Design and Architecture
Echoes presents selected, beloved classics alongside less well-known gems and fresh, new works, creating a fascinating dialogue and story for international audiences.
The exhibition celebrates the centenary year of Finland’s independence with an engaging exploration and narrative of Finnish design and architecture.
The remote location, harsh climate conditions and historical events have left their mark on the quintessential quality of Finnish design and architecture. It is often characterised by a simple elegance and pragmatism, combined with an optimal use of materials, meeting the highest quality standards. The objects and buildings on display also attest to the designers’ and architects’ interest and role in promoting social development, equality and wellbeing.
The exhibition is articulated around eight central themes rooted in Finnish nature and society. It builds bridges between the past and the present, shedding light on both the similarity and the differences between design and architecture. From common themes and sources of inspiration, they have each grown and found expression through distinctive materials and shapes.
