VALVOMO New Finnish Design (2007)
Valvomo, a Helsinki-based design collective founded in 1993, transformed an old fish locker building in the Meatpacking District into a design showcase that displayed a selection of innovative furniture and lighting designs. The exhibition was one of the main events of the Meatpacking District Design ’07 and the U.S. debut for Valvomo.
Besides Valvomo’s own designs the showcase included street fashion by CTRL Clothing and electronic music by DJs PJVM and Randy Barracuda. The first New Finnish Design event was organized in collaboration with Design Forum Finland and the Finnish Cultural Institute in New York, with the support of the Consulate General of Finland.
