A window exhibition of ryas by Timo Sarpaneva and Uhra Simberg-Ehrström. On display until mid-May.
The exhibition can be viewed from the outside day and night. It is also open on Thu–Sat at 12–17 and by appointment.
The exhibition at Bröhan-Museum, Berlin, (from Oct 24, 2019 to Mar 1, 2020) and St. Annen-Museum, Lübeck, (from Apr 4 to Jul 5, 2020) presents the Scandinavian path to modernism, which involved an intense engagement with the ideas of the Bauhaus.
“I am roused by design objects which combine both aesthetics and function. Yrjö Kukkapuro’s works are a prime example of such”, collector Juhani Lemmetti explains. “I have always been interested in designers who keep a low profile. Those who put all their energy onto the product itself, not self-promotion.”
Finnish creativeness meets traditional Japanese craftmanship from the Iwate area. Designers: Ville Kokkonen and Harri Koskinen.
