"Glass Design from Finland, the Land of Forests and Lakes"
The original designs that we can see in Finland today were created by interior designers, beginning with a prototype having been made during the several decades after the independence of the country in 1917, which later developed miraculously after the Second World War. The designers incorporated the beautiful nature, climate and the unique culture of Finland into their concepts and motifs, producing innovative works of refined beauty. Their design was not limited to ceramics and glass ware but extended to daily life as a whole, under the idea of producing "timeless design products". Their works are the beauty that can be found within an ordinary life. This exhibition introduces the fascinating Finnish design through approximately 150 pieces of glass and ceramic ware. We hope you will enjoy the charming world of design created by the land of forests and lakes.
