The Embassy of Finland, The Finnish Institue, and Stockholm Design Events had the pleasure of presenting Design Diplomacy.
This event was where leading design profiles from two countries met and share their experiences with the audience.
Finlands ambassador in Sweden – Ambassador Liisa Talonpoika
Design Diplomacy took place at the residence of the Finnish ambassador, the De Geerska palace from 1774 and the evening began with an introduction by Elna Nykänen Andersson, Press Council, to this unique cultural treasure in the heart of Stockholm. Lena Bergström design & Klaus Haapaniemi.
The event was a collaboration between Stockholm Design Week, the Embassy of Finland in Stockholm, and The Finnish Institue. The event is part of the exhibition programme 2020 in connection to Wild at Heart – A Collection of Modern Finnish Design and Art, hosted by the Finnish Institute in Stockholm.
Design Diplomacy is a popular concept that was launched at Helsinki Design Week 2016 and has since then toured in cities such as Tokyo, Berlin, Madrid and New York. A deck of questions is used as a starting point for both easy and deeper discussions about design.
