PROto PLAY is ´design professionals at play,’ and is organized by a new collective of Finnish based designers and makers. The exhibition showcases a group perspective of ways we approach ‘shape, color, and function’ with furniture, lighting, ceramics and textiles. PROto PLAY is an approach to navigating both the fundaments and trends of our creative industry. PROto PLAY is a group dialogue to examine the ways we develop honest, timeless, purposeful designs augmented with our playful insights, nuances, and perspectives.

Our group consists of product designers, interior architects, and textile designers. Together, we share resources and organize exhibitions – where we challenge our thinking approach to develop new products.

Participating: Henri Aarnio, Bianca Byggmästar, Kristoffer Heikkinen, Zsuzsanna Horvath, Sebastian Högnabba, Josh Krute, Tomi Laukkanen, Pilvi Martikainen, Marjut Nousiainen, Maiju Uski
