Tänään 23.3. klo 17.30 HAM Puhe. Designmuseon yli-intendentti Merja Vilhunen: Finnish Design ja Milanon triennaalit. Suomalainen muotoilu koki valtavan menestyksen Milanon kansainvälisissä muotoilunäyttelyissä, joita järjestettiin kolmen vuoden väliajoin. Muotoilijoita palkittiin lukuisilla palkinnoilla ja ennennäkemättömällä lehdistöhuomiolla. Kotimaassa designerit esiteltiin kuin urheiluareenoiden kansallissankarit. Menestyksen takana olivat taiten suunnitellut näyttelyosastot, nappiin onnistunut PR-toiminta ja viestintä – sekä tietenkin upeat esineet! Tästä ilmiöstä sai alkunsa Finnish Design sellaisena kuin se maailmalla edelleenkin tunnetaan. Ilmainen. #HAMHelsinki #moderniaelamaa Kuva: Tapio Wirkkala: Iittala-Kanttarelli, 1946. © @designmuseo_fi / Kuva: Rauno Traskelin.
