You like Scandinavian design but have not yet introduced yourself to specific Finnish design? Then have a look at the designmuseo in the design quarter of Helsinki. It was founded already in 1873 and exhibits all kinds of design, including graphic design, industrial design an fashion. And it is absolute fun to spend some time there!

The museum has a massive collection of drawings and (everyday) items. In addition, interesting changing exhibitions take place here. What I learned there is that the wonderful classic ball chair is a Finnish design by Eero Aarnio. But unfortunately you also have to pay more than 6,000 Euros for one of them… Much cheaper to get is Angry Birds – did you know that this smartphone game was invented by the Finnish company Rovio Entertainment? A lot of Finns have contributed to our everyday life, mostly unnoticed.
