“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.”

How are design collections created and why do some design objects become sought-after collectibles? The Collectors and Collections exhibition at Design Museum displays choice items from valuable private collections.
