The works of Finnish Artists - Michael Schilkin, Birger Kaipiainen, Rut Bryk, Kaj Franck and Kyllikki Salmenhaara will be featured in a multimedia exhibition, to celebrate Finland's 100th year of independence. These artists have made a significant contribution in moulding Finland as design-centred country, which has received the highest number of design awards globally as compared to the size of its population.
Design Finland 100 is proud to partner with Raffles College of Higher Education and their students to present the story of these designers through this new concept, a first in and out of Finland. Southeast Asia is known as the new growth engine of the world economy and considered a significant market for Finnish companies. Together with Design Finland 100, new relationships with academic institutions and business partners in the region shall be built.
