‘NORTHER’: A BREEZE OF SIMPLICITY BLOWS FROM AALTO UNIVERSITY
A fresh breeze that brings with it new ideas from the North. It comes from the peak of Europe, from Finnish Aalto University and from the works of 26 of its students on display at exhibition “Norther”, in Zona Ventura Lambrate in Milan.
Aalto University exists only since 2010, from the fusion of 3 faculties in the city of Helsinki, and for Milan’s Salone event it brought with it a representative selection of the future of Finnish design in various fields: furniture, ceramics, glass, textiles, fashion and apparel. The keywords? Simplicity in concepts and experimentation with construction techniques and traditional materials.
