FINNISH DESIGN UNWRAPPED - JANI KAILA

Finnish Design Unwrapped – Jani Kaila exhibition will open Design Museum’s Design Gallery 12 series of exhibitions. The Design Museum’s entire 2012 programme is related to the design capital activities. Displaying photographs by Jani Kaila and selected design objects, this exhibition presents the most interesting recent works of contemporary Finnish design. Originally held at London Design Festival in September 2011, the exhibition will be shown at Design Museum from the 4th to the 29th of January 2012.

Jani Kaila photographed designers in various situations: at work, in their spare time, outdoors and at the sources of their inspiration. His individual and carefully selected angles of view provide a new perspective on the Finnish idiom of form. Also Kaila’s many years of professional work abroad in London introduce an element of objectivity. “I wanted to understand how designers work and relax; where they get their ideas from. I photographed them as freely as possible, in settings that they felt to be most natural to them. It was important to preserve a natural atmosphere, because I wanted viewer to sense how the environment is reflected in the choices made by designers. This process was highly rewarding for me, as I got to know designers personally, and learned to understand their work and working processes,” notes photographer Jani Kaila.

Alongside portraits of 19 designers, Finnish Design Unwrapped includes photographs of their work and a selection of manufactured products and prototypes. The designers featured in the exhibition are Tapio Anttila, Aki Choklat, Tuomas Ervamaa, Jonas Hakaniemi, Maria Jauhiainen, Harri Koskinen, Veera Kulju, Nathalie Lahdenmäki, Jatta Lavi, Stefan Lindfors, Julia Lundsten, Mikko Paakkanen, Anu Penttinen, Päivi Raivio, Markku Salo, Ilkka Suppanen, Mika Tolvanen, Rane Vaskivuori and Lotta Veromaa.
