WILD AT HEART – A COLLECTION OF MODERN FINNISH DESIGN AND ART
Finnland-Institut in Deutschland
Finnish design is world famous. It’s prized around the globe for its high quality and distinct formal language. Simple, natural colors and clear lines are trendsetters. Originality, boldness, and use of vibrant color characterize the design language. The extensive Guest Country showcase WILD AT HEART is a colorful exhibition complex in which visitors will receive insight into the world of contemporary Finnish design. At the same time, the exhibition’s name references an aspect of Finnish culture that’s possibly less well known: beneath a reserved (even shy) surface pulses a refreshing mixture of wild humor, an abundance of exuberance, and pure passion. The curator of the Guest Country exhibition is the Finnish designer Tero Kuitunen. On view are works by Antrei Hartikainen, Sofia Okkonen, Tero Kuitunen, Klaus Haapaniemi, Milla Vaahtera, Tuuli-Tytti Koivula, Ragmate, Eero Aarnio, Teemu Salonen, and COMPANY − Aamu Song & Johan Olin.
