PLAYFUL New Finnish Design (2009) exhibited new innovations in the field of design through a playful approach and creative solutions. The underlying themes – environment, innovation, creativity and education – were highlighted by a series of events, a seminar and workshops.
The exhibition was curated by interior architect Esa Vesmanen. Both the exhibition architecture and the visual image were bold: nearby streets were invaded by eight ocean containers equipped with low energy lighting fixtures and display structures manufactured with recycled plastic. These mini-showrooms created an exciting and fun setting to present the designs.
