Functionality is key in Kukkapuro’s design philosophy, “Form follows function” is the motto he lives by. Time and again he takes up the challenge of creating functional, durable and comfortable furniture using as little materials as possible. Another typical trait is the lightness of the furniture and the honest shapes which often come to light in the details. The exhibition layout was created by Yryö Kukkapuro and gives an overview of his work from the late 50s until today. Visitors will also have the opportunity to try out a number of his designs.
