Writing Our Manifest

How is Finnish Design doing?
WE WANT TO RAISE THE IMPORTANCE OF SUPPORTING YOUNG DESIGNERS WHO ARE IN THE EARLY STAGE OF THEIR CAREER. — Young Finnish Design team
We are writing a manifest because we want to start a conversation about how Finnish Design is doing nowadays. Additionally, we want to raise the importance of supporting young designers who are in the early stage of their career. We are inspired by the manifest written by the founders of Artek; Alvar and Aino Aalto, Maire Gullichsen and Nils Gustav Hahl. Almost a century ago they were young visionaries who wanted to combine art and technology. Their aim was to bring design products and art forward internationally. As young founders ourselves we can easily relate to their manifest and the vision to create something new in design field. We consider them as role models who were looking forward to the future and had a will to make a global impact.
We bring new unseen Finnish Design from Designers to You!
