About works / performance

As Curator at Design Museum Helsinki, I’m currently working on an exhibition concept looking into how traveling can act as a tool for a designer. Since the 1950’s, numerous Finnish and Nordic designers have chosen Japan as the faraway destination of their excursions; similarly, many Japanese designers and design students have traveled to the Nordic Countries. The exhibition Travel as a Tool examines this relationship and the extensive significance of travel in the development of design in these countries.
