Helsinki, World Design Capital 2012, presents the design & art exhibition ‘The Camouflage’ with an avant-garde approach and Norwegian millinery

This year Helsinki is celebrating its title as World Design Capital 2012. Finland’s capital joined forces with Finnish cities Espoo, Vantaa, Kauniainen and Lahti, to organise around 300 design events and projects.

We especially recommend the visually stunning and inspiring exhibition ‘The Camouflage’ at the Museum of Contemporary Art. 19 designers present a mash-up of art and design and playfully test their limits :

‘The Camouflage exhibition focuses on how designers and artists work when they filter impulses, process ideas, seek a direction for their work. The ideas presented here are suggestions, discoveries and carefully aimed provocations that hint at the authors’ future work in relation to the ongoing discussion on the topic.’

Our favourites – the sci-fi hot tub by design duo Zoe Walker and Neil Bromwich as well as the project Eyes as Big as Plates by Riitta Ikonen, which was inspired by Norwegian folklore.
