The Design in Finland publication series was part of the export promotion campaigns of the Finnish Foreign Trade Association; the magazines were published between 1961 and the 1990s. The annual publication summarised the best products of the year from the participating design companies and offered media coverage for their businesses and advertisements.
The Design in Finland magazine showcase products from the fields of architecture, product design, glassware, pottery, fashion, jewellery, furniture design and industrial design for e.g. medicine and commerce. For those interested in the history of Finnish design, advertising and design marketing, the magazines offer a fascinating glimpse into the aesthetics of the 1980s and the 1990s.
