On January 27th the Design Museum Helsinki opens “DesignWorld”, its first major exhibition for 2012.
A not unimportant fact given the Finnish Capital’s tenure as World Design Capital 2012.
And very much in keeping with the Helsinki 2012 Manifesto – if we can use such phrase, apologies if that’s going to far – DesignWorld asks how design can help, influence and improve man, society and the ways we interact with the world around us.
Featuring market products, prototypes and “concepts in development” DesignWorld looks at design in numerous contexts, such as sustainability, responsibility or safety.
DesignWorld at the Design Museum Helsinki runs until May 6th 2012. Finnish Design Unwrapped – A Deeper Look until Janury 29th
