About This Project

WHEN: ONE DESIGN WEEK 2016

 

Тapio Wirkkala and Rut Bryk are two of the most emblematic figures in the formation of the concept for modern Finnish design and Scandinavian design as a whole. Tapio Wirkkala, a designer, sculptor and academic and his wife Rut Bryk, a graphic designer and ceramic artist are internationally acclaimed, and their creations are a part of almost every major design museum in the world. Esa Laaksonen told us more about their professional path and achievements in a special lecture. A practicing architect, Laaksonen is the director of the Alvar Alto Academy in Helsinki since its creation in 1999.

With the support of Embassy of Finland in Sofia.
