The Tomorrow’s Archives exhibition at the Iittala & Arabia Design Centre presents the outcomes of material experiments by students from Aalto University in collaboration with Iittala. The students explored the characteristics and possibilities of materials without restrictions. The exhibition shows techniques of how to use familiar materials in a new way, prompting visitors to consider things such as what kind of world we might inhabit in the future.

A total of 43 design students from Aalto University took part in the project. The collaboration, which comprised of three separate courses, produced multiple different projects, nearly all of which are showcased in the exhibition.
