Outlining the evolution of applied art and design in Finland, from origins in the late 19th century to the outset of the 21st, this study by Pekka Korenmaa pinpoints the main underlying factors behind Finnish design today and shows how these have become an integral aspect of the country's identity, economy and international image.

From industry to culture, and training and education to designers and products, it thoroughly demonstrates how design has historically operated in the tension between art and industry, both serving and enhancing everyday life. Numerous photos, posters and illustrations portray every imaginable aspect of the rich diversity found in Finnish design.
