Their focus in Helsinki has been to investigate Nordic social culture and environmental history and it’s influences on Scandinavia’s craft and design practices.

They will give an overview of the history of their individual practices, collaborative projects, and observations from three months traveling and speaking with various designers, artists, and business people across the region.
