Being a small country, Finland has a very strong design tradition. The Finnish design school presents many internationally known works that have become design icons and keep inspiring design developers worldwide.
Is this international fame just a closed case, to be penetrated by historical inquiry? Can it serve as a proactive repository in shaping the future? Can the past inform and inspire contemporary and future actions?
