Case: Design Forum, Installation and Exhibition Design

Kaj Franck was a leading figure in Finnish design and culture. He was the artistic director for the Iittala Group, renowned for creating utility products that are simple and versatile - yet beautiful. Design Forum Finland celebrated the work of Franck with an exhibition and installation, 2011.

The Kaj Franck & Beyond installation showcased the present-day heritage of Franck’s design philosophy with an installation that features Franck’s morning in Athens glass pendants which represent Franck’s lesser known and more artistic work. The pendants are suspended and reflected in mirrors in the exhibition space. The reflections of exhibition visitors mingle with the pendants.
