Hanna Konola "Year of Confetti"

“Today, design represents our future. ” So says that the tagline for the The NEXT Design exhibition. A multidisciplinary selection of works that represents the ideals and values of the new generation of masters from Aalto University.

The exhibition showcases a range of ideas and concepts, from a thermal carpet that changes colour by touch, to the complexity of three dimensional thinking to achieve an ornamental 2D puzzle. From the concept of a chair that can be reduced by half while maintaining an ergonomic sitting position, to knitted fabric that can display its interactions on a screen.

33 masters from MoA’12 -exhibition will be on show 31.10-25.11.2012 at Tongji University.
