Free Public Panel Discussion Event
After a 16 month break, the Design Culture Salon is re-established in Helsinki. We are starting off with a local question of  'What is Finnish Design Culture?'.
Finland is hot. Hardly a day goes by without an article in the international press extolling the virtues of Finland's more equal society, its high happiness index and, of course, the strength of its design. But what are Finnish design's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats? How is Finnish design culture shaped and what consolidates it? How does the turn towards service design and design thinking re-shape conceptions of Finnish design? Is it appropriate, in an era of globalisation, to talk about design in national terms?
These are just some of the questions we shall be discussing with our panel.
