Design links

LINKING

I will in this post list a couple of links that I check regularly for updates

The Finnish design museum

The museum hosts several exhibitions per year and they never disappoint. They have a permanent departement but their current exhibition deals with the 125 year anniversary of the Finnish glass company Iittala. Be sure to visit their store and café.

www.finnishdesign.fi

Finnishdesign is a site with links and resources for Finnish design. It was put up due to the new interest in design in 2004. The site is supported by the design industry in Finland. You want contact information – you find it here. You want to know what’s happening in the field – you find it here.

Finnish Design Shop
The best way to find new (and old) Finnish design products is to shop here. They have a news letter and an easily navigated layout. They ship internationally. Go crazy if you can afford it.


Tomorrow’s Antique

The main seller of modern design in Finland. Decent prices and a good selection. And the owner Esa Väisänen is nice. He ships internationally. There are sections with Tynell, Tapiovaara, Aalto and Kukkapuro. Well worth a visit in Helsinki if you have the time. There are several other design dealers in the Hietalahti hall where TA is located.

Huuto.net

The Finnish Ebay. It is only in Finnish but you can either directly go to Antiikki ja taide -> Taideteollisuus -> Design and go through all the listings. Or you can search the whole site for what you’re looking for by clicking Haku. You have to register though to be able to participate in the bidding. The prices can be quite reasonable and it’s fairly easy to do finds.


Designaddict

A must. If you didn’t find it anywhere else you will find it here. They have all the listings whether it’s news, shops or whatever you’re lokking for. Check out the classifieds as well.

www.architonic.com

Architonic provides you with information on the products of different companies and designers. They have a wide selection of vintage products and products currently in production. In six languages! Enjoy.
