The Essence Of Finnish Design And Culture

Sale Special Price $36.90 $41.00


Published on the occasion of an exhibition in Japan, this volume offers an overview of how, for the Finns, culture has played an exceptionally important role in the emergence of the country’s design aesthetic in the 19th and 20th centuries. It shows how the significance of architecture and industrial design as means of national expression intensified in its post-independence climate, giving rise to a national collective pride. Today, Finland’s culture, innovation, and values are recognised the world over. From problem-solving to an appreciation for nature, the book examines the key characteristics of Finnish culture through its history of art, architecture, illustration, design, and more.
