Aalto University and Tama Art University
Shared Stories

A collaboration project between Aalto University and Tama Art University textile and fashion design students presents perspectives on cultural exchange and sustainable design thinking.

In the exhibition Shared stories, Aalto University textile and fashion students and staff showcase concepts and works inspired by dialogue of sustainable design in Finnish and Japanese cultures. The experiments include textiles and garments dyed with traditional Japanese indigo plant and Finnish woad, which is an indigo plant cultivated in Finland. The works were designed in workshops held in Aalto University and Tama Art University during summer 2019 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Japan and Finland.

Workgroup: You-Chia Chen, Elisa Defossez, Leonardo Hidalgo Uribe, Riikka Hongisto, Helmiina Karhumaa, Tuuli-Tytti Koivula, Riikka Piippo, Maija Fagerlund, Anna-Mari Leppisaari

Held at the palace at Erottaja 2, the Room with a View exhibition consists of about thirty rooms which each provide a different perspective on design work. The participants invited to exhibit represent various design fields, including clothing design, glass art, research, furniture design, graphic design and architecture.

Open from 11 am to 7 pm every day except Monday, 9 September.
