Tuuli Mattelmäki gives a Designer Talk in the Design for Every Body exhibition space.

Industrial designer and professor Tuuli Mattelmäki has conducted pioneering research on design probes. Her goal in the Väinö project, completed in the early 2000s, was to explore how probes could be used to improve understanding of the lives of older people, and contribute to the design of better environments, tools and services for them to use. The Väinö project is on display in the exhibition.

The Design Museum is an internationally recognized national specialist museum of Finnish design. Located in the central Helsinki, Design Museum researches, collects, stores and documents design, and displays it both in Finland and in touring exhibitions abroad.

Our current exhibitions are Design for Every Body, Utopia Now – The Story of Finnish Design and on 9 September we open our new gallery exhibition What if? Alternative Futures.
