Design Archives launch new digital resource.
17 May 2012
This week, the Design Archives launch a new digital resource to celebrate Helsinki's designation as World Design Capital 2012. This resource was produced to showcase Finnish materials held in the archives of the Council of Industrial Design/Design Council, ICOGRADA and ICSID.
The resource also includes a new photography project by Sirpa Kutilainen exploring what Finnish design means to Brighton's Finnish community. An exhibition of these images is held at the Northern Lights (6 Little East Street, Brighton) 19 May - 15 June as part of Brighton Fringe 2012.
Image shows glass lighting fittings designed by Lisa Johansson-Pape for OY Stockmann AB, exhibited at the 1960 Milan Triennial. Original reference: GB-1837-DES-DCA-30-1-LIG-EL-CW-14.
