Exhibition, Design Museum, Helsinki, Finland.
Aged 83, professor and interior architect Eero Aarnio has had an exceptionally long career. His is a widely known name in the history of modern design in Finland. This comprehensive retrospective includes furniture, lamps, small objects, and unique one-o pieces from the 1950s to the present.
It also features rarely seen original drawings and sketches demonstrating the designer’s working process. Visitors to the exhibition are shown the lesser- known aspects of Aarnio’s design process as well, with materials collected from the designer’s own worktable and from factory production lines also on display.
