Finnish Modern Design Reviews


"This volume is an especially useful reference work as well as a pleasure to browse through." Neil Bingham, World of Interiors "Both parts of the book are fascinating. The essays provoke, challenge and question preconceived international views of Finnish culture and history and examine Finland's close relationship with other Nordic countries. The latter part explores the background history of production and manufacturing...This comprehensive and well-designed book will excite anyone who is already an enthusiast of the movement and will also enthuse a great many newcomers." Susan Hewer, RSA Journal "There's more, much more, to this lively digest of Finnish design, which with its lucid catalogue will tell you all and then some about one of the world's outstanding achievements in modern design." Grace Glueck, New York Times "This is an important and insightful publication on a subject not previously treated in English." Choice
