This exhibition features iconic pieces from the golden age of Finnish design of the 1950s, Nokia mobile phones and the Angry Birds game alike. Utopia Now is Design Museum’s collections exhibition, telling about the central role of design in the emergence of the Finnish welfare state. It falls into five themes in which the history of design is presented in living narratives. The exhibition’s digital applications permit the display of previously unseen materials and a much greater amount of information than previously.

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.
