The exhibition shows Finland and the Finnish way of life through mundane, novel and humorous objects: a vase by Aalto from 1936, a Mobira Cityman 1987, a maternity package from 2017…
What would you consider an authentically Finnish object?
“100 Objects from Finland” traces the path that has led the people of Finland to the present day. Some of the objects on display are Made in Finland while others are Designed in Finland, but all of them are characteristic of Life in Finland. Some keywords keep popping up over and over again – climate, light, children, work, perseverance, and happiness.
The exhibition will be curated by Anna Kortelainen and Pekka Toivanen.
