How We See the Finns

Went to Museum of Ethnography
to see how the Hungarians see the Finns
.

The exhibition is on untill November 28, 2010
.
Beautiful building inside
.
How do we see the Finns?
From Nokia wellies

through Nokia tyres
to Nokia cell phones
.
These are how the mobile phones
used to look couple of years ago!.
.
Of course there're represented
the Moomins
. ice-hockey
(& Formula 1 - no pics, sorry)
&
Finnish design Aalto vases and bowls by Iittala
. Marimekko products
.
Nicely made exhibition!
Finns from Kalevala to Heavy metal
.
Museum of Ethnography
Kossuth Lajos tér 12.
1055 Budapest
.
Quite a surprise and also a bit confusing to
see pictures of own previous home
on the screen under the tittle
"Articles about Finnish design"!
