Applied art and design have shaped Finland's culture and economy since the late 19th century. In the process they have become an integral aspect of the identity and international image of this country.
Pekka Korvenmaa's book outlines the evolution of design in Finland from the 1870s to the beginning of the 21st century, focusing on key driving forces such as industrial innovation, training, star designers and pioneering products.
Featuring iconic designers and brands, such as Alvar Aalto, Tapio Wirkkala, Kaj Franck for Iittala and Marimekko, Finnish Design: A Concise History is a timely and authoritative study of a fascinating design culture.
