In this exhibition, four contemporary designers interpreted archive materials from the Friends of Finnish Handicraft from over a period of a hundred years. The archive of the Friends of Finnish Handicraft organization in the collection of Design Museum consists of some 6,500 fabric design samples, watercolour sketches, and woven textiles. Artist Hanna-Kaisa Korolainen, fashion designer Henna Lampinen, sculptor Matias Liimatainen and game designer Henri Tervapuro have created new works and products based on the archive material, combining traditional handicrafts techniques and technology. The exhibition was produced in association with the Friends of Finnish Handicraft and will be on display from 24 January until 22 March 2020.
Exhibition architecture was designed by Elina Aalto.
