Finnish design in the focus of Vienna Design Week 2019

All the world’s a stage, as Shakespeare already put it. This September, the design world will turn its attention to the Vienna Design Week. Designers from all around the world will gather in Vienna to present their creative work. This year’s guest country is going to be Finland. Laura Hirvi, director of the Finnish Institute in Germany, had a chat on this topic with Lilli Hollein, Director of Vienna Design Week.
