In 1961 the V&A held the hugely popular exhibition Finlandia (pictured right) showcasing the best of Finland's applied art and design. Today, the V&A's collections continue to reflect the country's extraordinarily rich material culture, and this book presents a timely study of Finnish design from the late nineteenth century right up to the present day - complete with fully illustrated examples of contemporary design. Featuring iconic designers and brands such as Alvar Aalto, Tapio Wirkkala, Kaj Franck for Iittala and Marimekko, Finnish Design: A Concise History considers the impact of twentieth-century Finnish modernism in its wider historical context and looks at how a flourishing design culture in Finland has continued to play an integral part in the nation's economy, industry and national identity.
