"Finnish Design in Israeli Homes" is an exhibition that explores the relationship between everyday life and design. All exhibited items are generously on loan from homes of Finns and friends of Finland in Israel. The exhibition is part of the celebrations of Finland's 100 years of independence. The theme of Finland 100 is "Together". That is how this exhibition came about.

Finns living in Israel have a strong connection to Finland. One of the unique ways to express this connection is through Finnish design objects. The items represent home and carry memories of life events.

Finnish design has become synonymous with functionality and aesthetics, original styling and high-quality manufacturing. A selection of objects such as furniture, lamps, glass, ceramics and textiles are brought together at the exhibition. The items manifest the co-existence of man and nature in Finland's timeless design. The objects also show the important role of design in industrial and social innovations.

A series of lectures on Finnish design will complement the exhibition on 25.5., 8.6. and 15.6.
