World Design Capital 2012.

The World Design Capital is an interesting phenomenon. And it does a lot to the city in question. I wrote about it last year. You can read the post here. And now it is Helsinki’s turn to host events in the name The World Design Capital. The Finns have indeed made an interesting program that spans over the 12 months of 2012. Read all about it here

Finland is a country of many great designers. And I trust more are to come in the years ahead.

Tapio Wirkkala made this beautiful table in 1958

and Katriina Nuutinen made these beauties recently, the Pulu Oil Lamp.

Designs from the past to the present and with the confidence of Finland. No wonder Helsinki is the World Design Capital 2012.
