EMOVEO – Movements in Contemporary Design

During Helsinki Design Week, the museum yard of the Museum of Finnish Architecture and the Design Museum will host an exhibition about movements in contemporary design from young makers’ points of view: the exhibition will showcase the works of twelve different Aalto University’s MA Design students with 12 different nationalities. The designers themselves will also work as guides during the exhibition.



Kiviäkin kiinnostaa

If rocks could talk, what would they say? The workshop utilizes words and narratives to ponder subjects such as friendship with nature and nature’s ingredients. One can also spend time at Annantalo by reading books, relaxing on pillows or getting acquainted with the friends and rocks available in the space.
